   Section 1.  The president of the state  civil  service  commission  is
 hereby directed to conduct a study on the current civil service examina-
 tion  process to identify existing resources and provide recommendations
 on how to improve current methodologies used regarding  the  examination
 process  to ensure diversity in the recruitment and hiring in the public
 sector.  Such study shall review the various needs of  applicants  based
 on  age,  race,  creed,  color, national origin, native language, sexual
 orientation, gender identity or expression, sex, disability  or  marital
 status.  The  study  must also review available resources to ensure that
 each of the needs of the above applicants are sufficiently met to ensure
 that there are no undue barriers  that  could  limit  opportunities  and
 prevent a diverse public sector workforce. Such resources shall include,
 but  not  be  limited  to,  transportation, accessibility to examination
 location and times of examinations, technology, preparation  courses  on
 general  exams,  translators,  tests  available  in  applicant's  native
 language, preparation materials or other  study  materials  provided  to
 applicants  before  examinations  are scheduled, mentors or a mentorship
 program, or any other testing  accommodations  deemed  necessary  for  a
 documented  disability.  If  resources are not available, the commission
 shall make recommendations regarding how such resources can be provided.
