AN  ACT  to  amend  the civil service law, in relation to geographic pay
  differentials for state employees

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision 7 of section 130 of the civil service law, as
amended by chapter 74 of the  laws  of  2000,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  7.  Geographic  pay  differentials.  [Whenever the director finds that
under community wage practices in private or other public employment  in
one or more areas or locations, wage rates of employees in a given occu-
pation  are  substantially higher than the wage rates paid by the state,
he may, subject to the approval of the director of the budget, authorize
a pay differential to be added as an adjustment to the hiring rate,  the
job  rate  and the longevity steps of the salary grade or grades for the
same or related occupations in  the  state  service  in  such  areas  or
locations.    A  pay  differential  under  this  subdivision  shall be a
percentage or a fixed dollar amount as prescribed in each  case  by  the
director  of  the  classification  and  compensation division subject to
approval of the director of the budget. Such differentials shall be paid
to employees whose basic annual salary is at or below the unadjusted job
rate of the salary grade or at or below the unadjusted longevity step of
the salary grade to which the employees are entitled based on the crite-
ria specified in subdivision three  of  this  section.  Those  employees
whose basic annual salary is above the unadjusted job rate for the sala-
ry  grade  and who are not entitled to be paid at a longevity step shall
receive a portion of the differential sufficient to increase their sala-
ry to the adjusted job rate. Those employees whose basic  annual  salary
is  above the unadjusted longevity step to which they are entitled shall
receive a portion of the differential sufficient to increase their sala-
