 Introduced by M. of A. McDONALD -- read once and referred to the Commit-
   tee on Governmental Operations
 
 AN  ACT to amend the public officers law, in relation to the creation of
   vacancies in a public office upon entering a guilty  plea  in  federal
   court  to  a  felony  or  crime or an offense which would constitute a
   felony under the laws of this state or involving  a  violation  of  an
   oath of office
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Paragraph e of subdivision 1 of section 30  of  the  public
 officers  law, as amended by chapter 454 of the laws of 1987, is amended
 to read as follows:
   e. His conviction of a felony, [or] CONVICTION OF a crime involving  a
 violation of his oath of office OR UPON ENTERING A GUILTY PLEA IN FEDER-
 AL  COURT  TO  A  FELONY OR CRIME OR AN OFFENSE WHICH WOULD CONSTITUTE A
 FELONY UNDER THE LAWS OF THIS STATE, OR INVOLVING  A  VIOLATION  OF  HIS
 OATH OF OFFICE, provided, however, that a non-elected official may apply
 for  reinstatement  to  the  appointing  authority  upon reversal or the
 vacating of such conviction where the conviction is the sole  basis  for
 the vacancy. After receipt of such application, the appointing authority
 shall afford such applicant a hearing to determine whether reinstatement
 is warranted. The record of the hearing shall include the final judgment
 of  the  court  which  reversed  or vacated such conviction and may also
 include the entire employment history of the  applicant  and  any  other
 submissions  which  may  form  the basis of the grant or denial of rein-
 statement notwithstanding the reversal or vacating of  such  conviction.
 Notwithstanding  any  law  to the contrary, after review of such record,
 the appointing authority may, in its discretion, reappoint  such  non-e-
 lected  official to his former office, or a similar office if his former
 office is no longer available. In the event of such  reinstatement,  the
 appointing  authority  may,  in  its discretion, award salary or compen-
 sation in full or in part for the  period  from  the  date  such  office
 became vacant to the date of reinstatement or any part thereof;
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
