 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, OR OTHER DISCHARGE UNDER HONORABLE CONDITIONS, INCLUDING, BUT
 NOT LIMITED TO, A GENERAL 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
