BILL NUMBER:S6012

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to military
service credit

PURPOSE:
To make New York's dates for authorized action in Lebanon
match the federal government's start date for purposes of pension
credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill amends § 1000 of the Retirement and Social
Security Law to make August 20, 1982, the state-recognized beginning
date for authorized actions in Lebanon. Section two is the effective
date.

JUSTIFICATION:
New York State Retirement and Social Security Law recognizes June 1,
1983, as the beginning of the military conflict in Lebanon. However,
the Secretary of the Navy, in the Navy and Marine Corps A wards
Manual, advises that authorized operations for which personnel can
receive the Navy Expeditionary Medal began August 20, 1982, nearly a
year before New York will give our veterans credit for. This
legislation is necessary to correct this error.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010-2011: A.4058
2009-2010: A.352
2007-2008: A.11362

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
