BILL NUMBER: S1409

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to
the membership of police officers and firefighters


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
The purpose of this legislation is to amend paragraph d, 4, Section
209 of the Civil Service Law, as amended by Chapter 57 of the Laws of
2003 to read: The provisions of this subdivision shall expire 30 years
from July first, 1977 rather than 28 years from that date.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Paragraph d of subdivision 4, Section 209 of the Civil Service Law, as
amended by Chapter 57 of the Laws of 2003 is amended to extend the
expiration date of the provisions for an additional two years or until
July 1, 2009.

JUSTIFICATION :
Compulsory arbitration has allowed the people of New York to enjoy
uninterrupted fire and police protection since 1973. All evaluations
of the effects of this law have been positive and have advocated the
continued use of this process. There have been no significant
increases or decreases in settlements due to the use of arbitration as
opposed to settling prior to the issue of an arbitration award. In
other words, there is no advantage for either party in carrying the
process to its final end.

This legislation is necessary to extend binding arbitration for an
additional two years to continue to provide for peaceful settlement of
disputes.
