AN ACT granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and
  local employees' retirement system to Brian Stebbins

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, Brian Stebbins,
a  member  of the New York state and local employees' retirement system,
who was employed on August 1, 2003, by the village of Green Island,  and
who  filed  a  membership  application in such system on August 1, 2003,
which should have given him Tier IV status but for reasons not  ascriba-
ble to his own negligence and due to an administrative error, the appli-
cation was not processed in the usual manner and therefore not processed
until  March  15, 2012, may be deemed to have become a member of the New
York state and local employees' retirement system on August 1, 2003,  if
on  or  before  December  31, 2013 he shall file an application therefor
with the state comptroller. Upon the receipt of such application,  Brian
Stebbins shall be granted Tier IV status in the New York state and local
employees'  retirement  system  and  be  eligible for all the rights and
benefits thereof. No contributions made to the New York state and  local
employees'  retirement system by Brian Stebbins shall be returned to him
pursuant to this act.
  S 2. Any past service costs incurred in implementing the provisions of
this act shall be borne by the village of Green Island.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD01956-04-3

S. 5564--A                          2                         A. 7458--A

  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  will  grant  Tier 4 status in the New York State and Local
Employees' Retirement System to Brian M.  Stebbins,  a  current  Tier  5
member  employed  by  the  State  of  New  York, by changing his date of
membership to August 1, 2003, the first date  he  was  employed  by  the
Village of Green Island.
  If this legislation is enacted during the 2013 legislative session, we
anticipate that there will be an increase of approximately $2,100 in the
annual contributions of the State of New York for the fiscal year ending
March 31, 2014.
  In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be
an  immediate  past  service  cost of approximately $1,200 which will be
borne by the Village of Green Island as a one time payment.  This  esti-
mate is based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1,
2014.
