  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1. Section 55-c of the civil service law, as amended by chap-
ter 603 of the laws of 1995, subdivision 1 as amended by chapter 340  of
the laws of 2008, is amended to read as follows:
  S [55-c] 55-D.  Employment of veterans with disabilities by the state.
1.  The  commission [may] SHALL determine [up to] five hundred positions
with duties such as can be performed by disabled veterans  and  veterans
with disabilities who are found otherwise qualified to perform satisfac-
torily  the  duties  of  any such position. Upon such determination, the
said positions shall be classified in the noncompetitive class, and  may
be  filled only by veterans of the armed forces of the United States who
served therein during time of war, as defined in paragraph (c) of subdi-
vision one of section eighty-five of this chapter, and (a) who establish
by appropriate documentary evidence that they are disabled veterans,  as
defined  in  paragraph  (b) of subdivision one of section eighty-five of
this chapter, or (b) by those veterans, as defined in paragraph  (a)  of
subdivision  one  of section eighty-five of this chapter, who shall have
been certified by the employee health service of the department as being
disabled but capable of performing the duties of said positions.  Prior-
ity in certification and referral of both  such  disabled  veterans  and
certified disabled but capable veterans shall be given to those veterans
who  received  a  wound  in combat, as documented by the awarding of the
purple heart, as authorized by the United States department of  defense,
and  that  wound is the cause of, or a substantially contributing factor
to, the degree of impairment, who otherwise  meet  the  requirements  of
this  section. The number of veterans appointed pursuant to this section
shall not exceed five hundred.
