  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
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.
  § 2. Section 352 of the executive law  is  amended  by  adding  a  new
subdivision 6 to read as follows:
  6.  THE  STATE  DIRECTOR SHALL SUBMIT A PLAN TO THE COMMISSION BY JULY
FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWENTY, AND EVERY FIVE YEARS THEREAFTER, WITH  FIND-
INGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO:
  (A) PROMOTE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPREHENSIVE STATEWIDE PROGRAM OF
COORDINATED SERVICES FOR SERVICE-DISABLED VETERANS THAT INCLUDES:
  (I) MATTERS PERTAINING TO EDUCATIONAL TRAINING AND RETRAINING SERVICES
AND FACILITIES;
  (II) HEALTH, MEDICAL AND REHABILITATION SERVICES;
  (III) EMPLOYMENT AND RE-EMPLOYMENT SERVICES;
  (IV) HOUSING OPTIONS;
  (V) TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS;
