   Section  1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby recognizes that
 New York state's veterans, particularly those who  suffered  service-re-

 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
