     1    Section 1. Subdivision 5 of section 242 of the military law is amended
     2  by adding a new paragraph (c) to read as follows:
     3    (c) Public officers or employees,  as  defined  by  paragraph  (a)  of
     4  subdivision  one  of this section, who are not employees of the state of
     5  New York and therefore not entitled to the benefits contained  in  para-
     6  graph  (b)  of  this subdivision, who have served in a combat theater or
     7  combat zone of operations as documented by a copy of his or  her  DD214,
     8  certificate  of release or discharge from active duty, or other applica-
     9  ble department of defense documentation, may be entitled  to  additional
    10  paid leave for health related services related to duty in a combat thea-
    11  ter  or  combat  zone of operations.   The governing body of a municipal
    12  corporation may, in its sole discretion, adopt a resolution or local law
    13  providing for the payment of the salary or other  compensation  of  such
    14  public  officers  or  employees for any and all periods of absence while
    15  utilizing healthcare related services related to duty in a combat  thea-
    16  ter  or  combat  zone of operations, not exceeding five working days, in
    17  any one calendar year. Any such local law  or  resolution  adopted  must
    18  apply  to  both  combat  theater  veterans and combat zone of operations

                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.

        A. 1093--B                          2

     1  veterans employed by such public employer.  Nothing  in  this  paragraph
