BILL NUMBER:S1713

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 106 of the laws of 2003,
constituting the Patriot Plan, in relation to extending the
applicability of a provision thereof for the suspension of public
retirement system loan repayment obligations

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This legislation would extend from
July 1, 2010, the ability of members of the military service to
suspend their repayment if loan to a retirement system while engaged
in active service to the military.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would amend Section 43 of
Chapter 106 of the laws of 2003, constituting the Patriot Plan to
extend the seven year sunset provision to nine years, effectively
changing the date that this provision would expire from July 1, 2010
to July 1, 2012.

As a result this bill would permit military service personnel engaged
in active service to stop replaying any loan from a retirement system
until they return from active duty for two additional years. The
period of repayment is increased correspondingly with the amount of
time missed due to military service.

JUSTIFICATION: The law that allows military personnel to stop
repaying loans from a retirement system while on active duty is set to
expire on July 15 of this year. This bill would prevent that
expiration from occurring until July 1, 2012.

This law provides a benefit to military personnel allowing them to
halt payments for a loan to a retirement plan when engaged in active
military service. Such allows military personnel more financial
freedom when preparing to be deployed.

This bill would continue to provide such assistance to families of
military personnel as well as provide additional peace of mind to
soldiers, sailors, airmen while they are away. By providing the proper
support to our troops we are allowing them to do their difficult work
without the distraction of problems at home.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: According to the
New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System, if this bill
was enacted there will be a minimal cost. The New York State Teachers'
Retirement System estimates the cost to be negligible.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
