AN  ACT  to  amend  the executive law, in relation to expanding opportu-
  nities for service-disabled veteran-owned business enterprises

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Legislative findings. New York state (the "state") is home
to more than 900,000 veterans, seventy-two percent of whom  have  served
during periods of conflict.  Additionally, the state is home to approxi-
mately  30,000 active duty military personnel as well as 30,000 national
guard and reserve personnel. In honor of their service to and  sacrifice
for  our nation, New York state declares that it is the public policy of
the state to promote and encourage the continuing  economic  development
of  service-disabled  veteran-owned  businesses.   In the furtherance of
this policy, the state aims to assist service-disabled veterans in play-
ing a greater role in the economy of the state and to provide additional
assistance and support to disabled veterans to better equip them to form
and expand small businesses, thereby enabling them to realize the Ameri-
can dream they fought to protect. To achieve this objective, the  legis-
lature finds that it is in the best interest of the economic development
of the state to enact the "Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act".
  S  1-a.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the
"Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business Act".
  S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a new article 17-B to read
as follows:
                              ARTICLE 17-B
       PARTICIPATION BY SERVICE-DISABLED VETERANS WITH RESPECT TO
                             STATE CONTRACTS
SECTION 369-H. DEFINITIONS.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
