 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;
