BILL NUMBER:S3489A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the public officers law, in relation to certain residency
requirements for certain positions

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to allow residents of Nassau, Westchester,
Suffolk, Orange, Rockland, or Putnam counties to satisfy the
residency requirements of section 3-b of the Public Officers Law,
should they be employed in any of the peace officer titles listed in
this bill.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends section 3-b of the Public Officers law by adding a
new subdivision 4 allowing persons holding any of the titles listed
within the section to satisfy the residency requirement of section
3-b of Article 2 of the Public Officers Law if he or she resides in
Nassau, Suffolk, Orange, Rockland or Putnam counties following two
years of continuous service residing within New York City.

JUSTIFICATION:
In 2009, the City of New York amended its residency requirement, Local
Law 10 of 2009, to permit an employee of the City of New York to
reside in Nassau, Westchester, Suffolk, Orange, Rockland, or Putnam
counties following two years of employment while residing within New
York City. Because these counties have lower costs of living than the
counties of the City of New York, these residency provisions provide
employees an opportunity to decrease their cost of living. However,
employees must reside within the City of New York for two years
before they are eligible for this residency exemption. Employers in
the City of New York that have the power to enforce this city law
strictly adhere to it, and employees found to be in violation are
terminated.

Presently, the New York City law does not extend the residency
exemption to the titles listed in this bill, peace officers subject
to New York State Public Officers Law. This bill would place the
peace officers listed in the same position as all other employees
that are granted a reprieve from high cost of living expenses after
two years of continuous employment.

Chapter 480 of the Laws of 2010 provided New York City fire protection
inspectors, urban park rangers and traffic enforcement agents level
IV the same residency requirement of Local Law 10 of 2009. This bill
simply extends the residency exemption to the peace officer titles
listed in the bill.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.7745 - Referred to Investigations and Government Operations

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:


This act shall take effect immediately.
