 Introduced  by  Sen. RITCHIE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

 AN ACT to amend the education law, in  relation  to  expedited  teaching
   licensing by certain military spouses
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Section 3001 of the education law is amended  by  adding  a
 new subdivision 4 to read as follows:
   4. A. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION OF LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY APPLI-
 CANT  SEEKING TO QUALIFY FOR A LICENSE PURSUANT TO THIS TITLE WHO IS THE
 SPOUSE OF AN ACTIVE DUTY MEMBER  OF  THE  ARMED  FORCES  OF  THE  UNITED
 STATES, NATIONAL GUARD OR RESERVES AS DEFINED IN 10 U.S.C. SECTIONS 1209
 AND  1211,  AND SUCH SPOUSE IS TRANSFERRED BY THE MILITARY TO THIS STATE
 SHALL BE AFFORDED AN EXPEDITED REVIEW OF  HIS  OR  HER  APPLICATION  FOR
 LICENSURE. SUCH APPLICATION SHALL BE ON A FORM PRESCRIBED BY THE DEPART-
 MENT  AND  SHALL INCLUDE AN ATTESTATION BY THE APPLICANT OF THE MILITARY
 STATUS OF HIS OR HER SPOUSE AND ANY OTHER SUCH SUPPORTING  DOCUMENTATION
 THAT  THE  DEPARTMENT  MAY REQUIRE. UPON REVIEW OF SUCH APPLICATION, THE
 DEPARTMENT SHALL ISSUE A LICENSE TO THE APPLICANT IF THE APPLICANT HOLDS
 A LICENSE IN GOOD STANDING IN ANOTHER STATE AND IN THE  OPINION  OF  THE
 DEPARTMENT,  THE  REQUIREMENTS  FOR  LICENSURE  OF  SUCH OTHER STATE ARE
 SUBSTANTIALLY EQUIVALENT TO  THE  REQUIREMENTS  FOR  LICENSURE  IN  THIS
 STATE.
   B.  IN ADDITION TO THE EXPEDITED REVIEW GRANTED IN PARAGRAPH A OF THIS
 SUBDIVISION, AN APPLICANT WHO PROVIDES SATISFACTORY  DOCUMENTATION  THAT
 HE  OR  SHE  HOLDS  A  LICENSE  IN GOOD STANDING FROM ANOTHER STATE, MAY
 REQUEST THE ISSUANCE OF A TEMPORARY PRACTICE PERMIT, WHICH,  IF  GRANTED
 WILL  PERMIT  THE  APPLICANT TO WORK UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A NEW YORK
 STATE LICENSEE IN ACCORDANCE WITH REGULATIONS OF THE  COMMISSIONER.  THE
 DEPARTMENT  MAY  GRANT  SUCH  TEMPORARY  TEACHING PERMIT WHEN IT APPEARS
 BASED ON THE APPLICATION AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION RECEIVED THAT  THE
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
