BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby recognizes that
New York state's veterans, particularly those who  suffered  service-re-
lated disabilities, have unique needs as a result of the sacrifices they
made  during  their  military service. It is also hereby acknowledged by
the legislature that due to the complexity of their needs, such individ-
uals require accessible, coordinated, and  specialized  services  within
their  communities  from multiple state and local agencies. The legisla-
ture finds that there is an immediate need for a statewide comprehensive
program to coordinate such services.
  S 2. The executive law is amended by adding a  new  section  368-a  to
read as follows:
  S  368-A. NEW YORK STATE INTERAGENCY COORDINATING COUNCIL FOR SERVICE-
DISABLED VETERANS. THERE IS HEREBY ESTABLISHED THE NEW YORK STATE INTER-
AGENCY COORDINATING COUNCIL FOR SERVICE-DISABLED VETERANS IN THE  EXECU-
TIVE  DEPARTMENT  TO  HAVE AND EXERCISE THE FUNCTIONS, POWERS AND DUTIES
PROVIDED BY THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION AND ANY  OTHER  PROVISION  OF
LAW.
  1. AS USED IN THIS SECTION THE FOLLOWING TERMS SHALL MEAN:
  (A)  "COUNCIL" MEANS THE NEW YORK STATE INTERAGENCY COORDINATING COUN-
CIL FOR SERVICE-DISABLED VETERANS;

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