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

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

  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 since the inception of the planning process created by  chapter  5
of the laws of 2008. Through its implementation of automated systems for
processing  civil  service  examinations  and by increasing its staff of
professional examiners, DCAS has enhanced  its  capacity  to  administer
competitive  examinations.  These  technological  advancements, together
with DCAS's judicious administration  of  qualified  incumbent  examina-
tions, as authorized by chapter 467 of the laws of 2016, and the reclas-
sification  of  titles,  as approved by the New York state civil service
commission, has led to a steady and continuing reduction  in  the  total
number  of  provisional  appointees in the New York city government work
force, and to a decrease in the number of those appointees who  continue
in  provisional status beyond the time limits set forth in section 65 of
the civil service law. The legislature  finds  that  the  constitutional
mandate  of  making  appointments and promotions "according to merit and
fitness to be ascertained, as far as practicable, by examinations which,
as far as practicable, shall be  competitive,"  would  be  furthered  by
