BILL NUMBER:S3749A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the retirement and social security
law, in relation to the limitation for retired police officers
employed as school resource officers

PURPOSE:

Removes the earnings limitation for retired police officers while
employed as school resource officers or school safety officers or
other substantially similar positions

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Subdivision 3 of section 212 of the retirement and social
security law is amended to address the employment of retired police
officers as school resource officers or school safety officers or
other substantially similar positions.

JUSTIFICATION:

Retired police officers are well-qualified to protect our students as
school resource officers. Currently, retired public employees must
apply for a "211 Waiver" in order to earn more than $30,000 per year.
This process, can often become burdensome. The cap on earnings can
deter those best qualified to protect our children from becoming
school resource officers. This bill would allow school districts to
hire retired police officers without needing a "211 Waiver."

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

This bill would remove earnings limitations for certain employees of a
school district, however this is not a mandate for districts to
increase salaries.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
