AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation  to  creating  the  women
  veterans advisory committee

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings. Women  make  up  15  percent  of  the
veterans  of the armed forces of the United States and continue to be an
increasingly integral part of the operations of the armed forces of  the
United  States  around  the  world.  Few  studies have been conducted to
determine and understand the unique challenges that women  veterans  may
have,  both  post  deployment and following separation from active duty.
Many veterans who are women do not self-identify as  veterans  and  may,
therefore,  fail  to  consider  various  programs  and benefits that are
available to them as a result of their military service.
  § 2. The executive law is amended by adding a  new  section  361-c  to
read as follows:
  §  361-C.  WOMEN  VETERANS ADVISORY COMMITTEE.   1. THE WOMEN VETERANS
ADVISORY COMMITTEE IS HEREBY CREATED CONSISTING OF  FIVE  MEMBERS,  WITH
ONE  MEMBER  APPOINTED  BY EACH OF THE FOLLOWING:  (A) THE GOVERNOR; (B)
THE TEMPORARY PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE; (C) THE SPEAKER OF THE  ASSEMBLY;
(D)  THE  MINORITY  LEADER OF THE SENATE; AND (E) THE MINORITY LEADER OF
THE ASSEMBLY.  ALL APPOINTED MEMBERS MUST BE WOMEN, AND MUST  BE  FORMER
MEMBERS  OF  THE  ARMED  FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT
LIMITATION, THE NEW YORK ARMY  NATIONAL  GUARD  AND  THE  NEW  YORK  AIR
NATIONAL  GUARD, WHO RECEIVED, UPON SEVERANCE FROM SERVICE, AN HONORABLE
DISCHARGE.
  2. IN MAKING APPOINTMENTS PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION ONE OF THIS SECTION,
THE FOLLOWING SHALL BE CONSIDERED:
  (A) THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE DIRECTOR OF VETERANS' AFFAIRS;

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