BILL NUMBER:S89A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
creation of a uniform system for the issuance of identification cards
for retired members of the state police

PURPOSE: To provide official identification cards for retired members
of the state police force.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Creates uniform identification cards to be issued to retiring
state police members. The cards shall only be issued to those retiring
in good standing. Retirement in good standing means retirement for
purposes other than avoiding disciplinary actions that may result in
dismissal for cause. The superintendent of state police is responsible
for promulgating rules and regulations for obtaining information neces-
sary to issue identification cards.

JUSTIFICATION: Retiring members of the state police force have worked
decades in service of their communities. Issuing identification cards is
a small token of commemoration of their tireless efforts. A uniform,
official state identification card will allow a simple and reliable way
of distinguishing former state police officers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011-12: S.7576-A/A.10300-A Passed Senate/Referred
to Governmental Operations

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it
shall become law.
