Introduced  by  Sen.  GOLDEN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Civil Service and Pensions

AN ACT to amend the  civil  service  law,  in  relation  to  provisional
  employees  of certain public employers; to amend chapter 5 of the laws
  of 2008 amending the civil service law relating to provisional employ-
  ees of certain public employers, in relation to extensions of  certain
  negotiated  agreements  and  extending the provisions of such chapter;
  and to amend part I of chapter 56 of the laws  of  2008  amending  the
  civil  service  law relating to excess provisional employees of a city
  having a population of one million or more, in relation  to  extending
  the provisions thereof


  Section 1. Statement of legislative findings and intent. The  legisla-
ture  hereby  finds  that  the  city of New York and other employers for
which the New York city department of citywide  administrative  services
("DCAS")  manages civil service appointments ("the DCAS employers") have
made substantial progress in reducing the number of provisional appoint-
ments. Aspects of the original plan developed by DCAS in accordance with
chapter 5 of the laws of 2008 to reduce provisional  appointments  could
not  be  fully  implemented  during  the period of effectiveness of such
plan, and a limited revision and extension are now necessary in order to
implement further actions in an appropriate timeframe that preserves the
quality and effectiveness of governmental  operations.  The  legislature
therefore  additionally  finds that the constitutional mandate of making
appointments and promotions "according to merit and  fitness"  would  be
furthered  by maintaining, for an additional defined period, the orderly
planning and implementation process, including review by the state civil
service commission, originally established by chapter 5 of the  laws  of
2008.  The  legislature  further  finds that during such period, limited
waivers of selected applicable time limitations, as well as the authori-
zation of certain negotiated  disciplinary  procedures  for  provisional
employees,  are  also  appropriate. These actions are authorized only in

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