  Section 1. The opening paragraph of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section 1 of part QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009, is amended to
read as follows:
  As soon as practicable after May first in the  year  nineteen  hundred
fifty-eight,  and annually thereafter as soon as practicable after Janu-
ary first in each succeeding year, the chair of the board  shall  assess
upon  and  collect from all self-insurers[, except group self-insurers],
the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group self-in-
surers,] (A) a sum equal to one hundred fifty per centum  of  the  total
disbursements made from the special disability fund during the preceding
calendar year (not including any disbursements made on account of antic-
ipated  liabilities  or  waiver  agreements  funded by bond proceeds and
related earnings), less the amount of the net assets in such fund as  of
December  thirty-first  of  said  preceding calendar year, and (B) a sum
sufficient to cover  debt  service,  and  associated  costs  (the  "debt
service assessment") to be paid during the calendar year by the dormito-
ry authority, as calculated in accordance with subparagraph five of this
paragraph.  Such  assessments  shall  be  allocated to (i) self-insurers
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund based upon the
proportion that the total compensation payments made by all  self-insur-
ers  [except  group  self-insurers] and the state insurance fund bore to
the total compensation payments made by all self-insurers [except  group
self-insurers],  the  state  insurance  fund, AND all insurance carriers
[and group self-insurers], AND (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the
proportion  that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance
carriers bore to the total compensation payments  by  all  self-insurers
[except group self-insurers], the state insurance fund and all insurance
carriers  [and  group  self-insurers] during the fiscal year which ended
within said preceding calendar  year[,  and  (iii)  group  self-insurers
based  upon  the proportion that the total compensation payments made by
all group self-insurers bore to the total compensation payments made  by
all  self-insurers,  the state insurance fund and all insurance carriers
during the fiscal year which ended within said preceding calendar year].
Insurance carriers and  self-insurers  shall  be  liable  for  all  such
assessments regardless of the date on which they came into existence, or
whether  they  have  made  any  claim for reimbursement from the special
disability fund. The portion of  such  sum  allocated  to  self-insurers
[except  group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund that shall be
collected from each self-insurer [except a group self-insurer]  and  the
state  insurance  fund  shall  be  a  sum equal to the proportion of the

S. 2807                            14                            A. 4007

amount which the total compensation payments of each  such  self-insurer
[except  a  group  self-insurer] or the state insurance fund bore to the
total compensation payments made  by  all  self-insurers  [except  group
self-insurers] and the state insurance fund during the fiscal year which
ended within said preceding calendar year. The portion of such sum allo-
cated  to insurance carriers that shall be collected from each insurance
carrier shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount which  the
total  standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to the total
standard premium reported by all insurance carriers during the  calendar
year which ended within said preceding fiscal year. [The portion of such
sum  allocated  to group self-insurers that shall be collected from each
group self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount
which the pure premium calculation for each such group self-insurer bore
to the total pure premium calculation for all  group  self-insurers  for
the  calendar  year which ended within the preceding state fiscal year.]
The payments from the debt  service  assessment,  unless  otherwise  set
forth  in  the  special  disability fund financing agreement, are hereby
pledged therefor and shall  be  deemed  the  first  monies  received  on
account of assessments in each year. For the purposes of this paragraph,
"standard premium" shall mean the premium as defined for the purposes of
this assessment by the superintendent of insurance, in consultation with
the  chair of the board and the workers' compensation rating board. [For
purposes of this paragraph "pure premium calculation" means the New York
state annual payroll as of December thirty-first of the  preceding  year
by  class  code  for each employer member of a group self-insurer multi-
plied by the applicable loss cost for each class code as  determined  by
the  workers'  compensation  rating  board in effect on December thirty-
first of the preceding year, and for a group or individual  self-insurer
who  has ceased to self-insure shall be based on payroll at the time the
group or individual self-insurer ceased  to  self-insure  reduced  by  a
factor  reflecting  the  reduction  in  the  group  or  individual self-
insurer's self-insurance liabilities since ceasing to  self-insure.]  An
employer  who has ceased to be a self-insurer [or a group that ceases to
be licensed as a group self-insurer] shall continue to be liable for any
assessments into said fund on account of any compensation payments  made
by  him  or  her  on his or her account during such fiscal year, and the
security fund, created under the provisions of section one hundred seven
of this chapter, shall, in the event of the insolvency of any  insurance
company, be liable for any assessments that would have been made against
such  company  except for its insolvency. No assessment shall be payable
from the aggregate trust fund, created under the provisions  of  section
twenty-seven  of this article, but such fund shall continue to be liable
for all compensation that shall be payable under any award or  order  of
the  board,  the  commuted  value of which has been paid into such fund.
Such assessments when collected shall be deposited with the commissioner
of taxation and finance for the benefit of such fund.  Unless  otherwise
provided,  such assessments, shall not constitute an element of loss for
the purpose of establishing rates for compensation insurance  but  shall
for  the purpose of collection be treated as separate costs by carriers.
All insurance carriers and the state insurance fund, shall collect  such
assessments,  from  their  policyholders  through  a  surcharge based on
premiums in accordance with rules set forth  by  the  superintendent  of
insurance in consultation with the New York workers' compensation rating

ed to, computing premium tax, reporting to the superintendent of  insur-

ance  pursuant  to section ninety-nine of this chapter and section three
hundred seven of  the  insurance  law,  determining  the  limitation  of
expenditures for the administration of the state insurance fund pursuant
to  section  eighty-eight  of  this  chapter  and the cancellation by an
insurance carrier, including the state insurance fund, of a  policy  for
non-payment of premium. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply
with  respect to policies containing coverage pursuant to subsection (j)
of section three thousand four  hundred  twenty  of  the  insurance  law
relating  to  every  policy  providing  comprehensive personal liability
insurance on a one, two, three or four family  owner-occupied  dwelling.
The  state insurance fund shall[,] notify its insureds that such assess-
ments, shall be, for the purpose  of  recoupment,  treated  as  separate
costs,  [respectively]  for  the  purpose of premiums billed on or after
October first, nineteen hundred ninety-four.  FOR THE PURPOSES  OF  THIS
SECTION,  A  "SELF-INSURER"  SHALL  BE:    (I) AN EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED TO
SELF-INSURE UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE OF SECTION FIFTY  OF  THIS  CHAPTER,
ACTIVE  GROUPS  AUTHORIZED  PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION THREE-A OF SECTION
FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER OR A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO  SELF-INSURE
UNDER  PARAGRAPH  TEN  OF  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS
CHAPTER; OR (II) A PUBLIC EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED AS SET FORTH IN  PARAGRAPH
A  OF  SUBDIVISION  FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER TO SELF-INSURE
UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE, THREE-A OR FOUR OF SUCH SECTION OR ARTICLE FIVE
OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETHER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  S 2. Subdivision 3 of section 50 of the workers' compensation law,  as
amended  by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, the second undesignated para-
graph as amended by section 3 of part R of chapter 56  of  the  laws  of
2010, is amended to read as follows:
  3.  By  furnishing  satisfactory  proof  to the chair of his financial
ability to pay such compensation for himself, OR  TO  PAY  SUCH  COMPEN-
SATION  ON BEHALF OF A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDIVISION
TEN OF THIS SECTION, in which case the chair shall require  the  deposit
with the chair of such securities as the chair may deem necessary of the
kind  prescribed  in  subdivisions  one,  two, three, four and five, and
subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section  two
hundred  thirty-five  of the banking law, or the deposit of cash, or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in  an  amount to be determined by the chair, or the posting and
filing as aforesaid of a combination of such  securities,  cash,  irrev-
ocable  letters  of credit and surety bond in an amount to be determined
by the chair, to secure his liability to pay the  compensation  provided
in this chapter. Any such surety bond must be approved as to form by the
chair.  If  an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS posts and files a combina-
tion of securities, cash, irrevocable letters of credit and surety  bond
as  aforesaid,  and  if  it becomes necessary to use the same to pay the
compensation provided in this chapter, the chair shall  first  use  such
securities  or  cash or irrevocable letters of credit and, when the full
amount thereof has been exhausted, he shall then require the  surety  to
pay  forthwith to the chair all or any part of the penal sum of the bond
for that purpose. The chair may also require an agreement on the part of
the employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to  pay  any  awards  commuted  under
section twenty-seven of this chapter, into the special fund of the state
fund,  as  a condition of his being allowed to remain uninsured pursuant
to this section. The chair shall have the authority to deny the applica-
tion of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to pay such  compensation  for

S. 2807                            16                            A. 4007

himself  or  to  revoke his consent furnished, under this section at any
time, for good cause shown. The employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS  qualify-
ing under this subdivision shall be known as a self-insurer.
  If  for  any  reason  the  status of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS
under this subdivision is terminated, the securities or the surety bond,
or the securities, cash, or irrevocable letters  of  credit  and  surety
bond,  on  deposit referred to herein shall remain in the custody of the
chair for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted under the
circumstances. In lieu thereof, and at the discretion of the chair,  the
employer, his or her heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidat-
ing  such  business,  may execute an assumption of workers' compensation
liability insurance policy securing such further and  future  contingent
liability as may arise from prior injuries to workers and be incurred by
reason  of  any change in condition of such workers warranting the board
making subsequent awards for payment of  additional  compensation.  Such
policy  shall  be  in a form approved by the superintendent of insurance
and issued by the state fund or any insurance company licensed to  issue
this  class of insurance in this state. In the event that such policy is
issued by an insurance company other than  the  state  fund,  then  said
policy  shall  be  deemed  of the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of
subsection (a) of section one  thousand  one  hundred  thirteen  of  the
insurance  law and covered by the workers' compensation security fund as
created and governed by article six-A of this chapter. It shall only  be
issued  for a single complete premium payment in advance by the employer
OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS and in an amount deemed acceptable  by  the  chair
and  the  superintendent of insurance. In lieu of the applicable premium
charge ordinarily required to be imposed  by  a  carrier,  said  premium
shall include a surcharge in an amount to be determined by the chair to:
(i)  satisfy  all assessment liability due and owing to the board and/or
the chair under this chapter; and (ii)  satisfy  all  future  assessment
liability  under  this  section.  Said surcharge shall be payable to the
board simultaneous to  the  execution  of  the  assumption  of  workers'
compensation  liability  insurance  policy. However, the payment of said
surcharge does not relieve the carrier from any other liability, includ-
ing liability owed to the superintendent of insurance pursuant to  arti-
cle  [six-a]  SIX-A  of this chapter.   When issued such policy shall be
non-cancellable without recourse for any cause during the continuance of
the liability secured and so covered.
  [The board will report to the  governor  and  the  legislature  on  or
before  December  first,  two thousand seven, as to the advisability and
feasibility of (1) implementing a statewide self-insured  employer  bond
program, and (2) an improved individual employer bond program.]
  S  3.  Paragraph  9  of  subdivision 3-a of section 50 of the workers'
compensation law is REPEALED and paragraph 2  and  subparagraph  (a)  of
paragraph  7, paragraph 2 as amended by chapter 139 of the laws of 2008,
and subparagraph (a) of paragraph 7 as amended by section 4 of part R of
chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, are amended and three new paragraphs 10,
11 and 12 are added to read as follows:
  (2) (a) Any group consisting exclusively of such employers may adopt a
plan for self-insurance, as a group, for  the  payment  of  compensation
under  this  chapter  to  their employees, except that no new groups may
adopt such a plan [prior to April first,  two  thousand  nine],  AND  NO
GROUP NOT COMPOSED SOLELY OF PUBLIC ENTITIES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A OF
SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  THIS  SECTION  MAY INSURE ANY LIABILITIES FOR ANY
EMPLOYERS ON AND AFTER JANUARY FIRST, TWO  THOUSAND  TWELVE,  EXCEPT  AS
PROVIDED  FOR  IN PARAGRAPH TEN OF THIS SUBDIVISION. Under such plan the

S. 2807                            17                            A. 4007

group shall assume the liability of all the employers within  the  group
and  pay  all compensation for which the said employers are liable under
this chapter, except that in the case of municipal corporations as here-
in  defined  no  proof  of financial ability or deposit of securities or
cash need be made in compliance with this subdivision.  The group quali-
fying under this subdivision shall be known as a group self-insurer  and
the  employers  participating therein and covered thereby shall be known
as members.
  (b) Where such plan is adopted the group  self-insurer  shall  furnish
satisfactory  proof  to  the  chair of its financial ability to pay such
compensation for the members in the industry covered by it,  its  reven-
ues,  their source and assurance of continuance. The chair shall require
the deposit with the chair of such securities as may be deemed necessary
of the kind prescribed in subdivisions one, two, three, four  and  five,
and  subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section
two hundred thirty-five of the banking law or the deposit of cash or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in an amount to be determined to secure its liability to pay the
compensation of each employer as above provided.  Such surety bond  must
be  approved as to form by the chair. The chair shall require each group
self-insurer to provide regular reports no  less  than  annually,  which
shall  include but not be limited to audited financial statements, actu-
arial opinions and payroll information containing proof that it is fully
funded. Such reports shall also include  a  contribution  year  analysis
detailing  contributions  and  expenses  associated  with  each specific
contribution year. For purposes of this paragraph, proof  that  a  group
self-insurer  is  fully funded shall at a minimum include proof of unre-
stricted cash and investments permitted by regulation of the chair of at
least one hundred percent of the total liabilities, including the  esti-
mate  presented in the actuarial opinion submitted by the group self-in-
surer in accordance with this chapter. The chair by regulation, may  set
further  financial standards for group self-insurers. Any group self-in-
surer that fails to show that it is fully funded shall be deemed  under-
funded,  and  must submit a plan for achieving fully funded status which
may include a deficit assessment on members of such  group  self-insurer
which  shall  be  subject to approval or modification by the chair. [The
chair may impose such limitations on admission of new members or  offer-
ing  of discounts on underfunded group self-insurers to insure that such
group self-insurers shall become fully funded. Should the group self-in-
surer fail to meet the terms of its plan, the chair  may  condition  its
continued  authorization  to act as a group self-insurer on the appoint-
ment of an outside monitor selected by the chair,  at  the  group  self-
insurer's  expense.  Effective January first, two thousand fourteen, any
group self-insurer that fails to show it is fully funded  in  accordance
with  this  paragraph  and the regulations issued pursuant thereto shall
have one year to cure the deficiency. If such deficiency  is  not  cured
within  one  year,  the  group self-insurer shall be given six months to
terminate its coverage.]
  (c) The chair shall evaluate, no less than once every three  years,  a
group  self-insurer's  compliance  with  the  financial  and  regulatory
requirements for self-insurance. The  chair  may  engage  any  qualified
person  or  organization  to  assist  with such evaluation and any costs
incurred by the chair shall be borne by  the  group  self-insurer  under
examination. Failure to submit to such independent review or to pay such

S. 2807                            18                            A. 4007

costs,  upon  demand of the chair, shall be sufficient grounds to termi-
nate coverage of the group self-insurer.
  (d)  The chair may require reports to be prepared by an auditor, actu-
ary or other consultant, selected  by  the  board  or,  at  the  chair's
discretion, by the group self-insurer from a list which shall be pre-ap-
proved  by  the  chair to determine whether the group self-insurer meets
the financial criteria for self-insurance.  All  actuaries  so  selected
shall be fellows or associates of the casualty actuarial society.
  (e)  The chair may also require that any and all agreements, contracts
and other pertinent  documents  relating  to  the  organization  of  the
members in the group self-insurer shall be filed [at the time the appli-
cation  for  group  self-insurance  is  made or anytime thereafter. Such
application shall be on a form prescribed by the chair.  The  chair  may
also  require an agreement on the part of said group self-insurer to pay
any awards commuted under section twenty-seven of this chapter into  the
aggregate trust fund as a condition of its being allowed to operate as a
group self-insurer pursuant to this subdivision] WITH THE CHAIR.
  (f) The chair shall have the authority to [deny the application of the
group  self-insurer  to  pay  such  compensation  or  to] revoke consent
furnished under this section at any time for good cause shown.
  (g) At least twenty days prior to the requested effective date of  the
participating  agreement, a group self-insurer shall notify the chair on
a prescribed form of a new group self-insurer  member  and  file  (1)  a
member  application  and  (2) a copy of the properly executed prescribed
participation agreement wherein the member acknowledges their joint  and
several obligation for their period of membership. The board shall, on a
form promulgated by the chair, provide notice of the member's rights and
responsibilities  as a group self-insurer member, including the member's
assumption of joint and several liability, and  require  the  member  to
return  a  signed  copy  to the chair as a condition of membership. Such
membership shall not become effective until the  signed  copy  has  been
received by the board.
  (h)  Any  member  terminating membership in a group self-insurer after
less than four years in such group self-insurer, and  any  member  in  a
group self-insurer that has defaulted, shall be precluded from obtaining
prospective  coverage  from  any  group  self-insurer for a period of at
least three years from the effective date of termination.
  (a) If for any reason, the status of a group self-insurer  under  this
subdivision  is  terminated,  INCLUDING BY OPERATION OF LAW ON AND AFTER
JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, the securities or cash or the surety
bond on deposit referred to herein shall remain in the  custody  of  the
chair  for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted. In lieu
thereof, and at the discretion of the chair, the group self-insurer, its
heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidating such  group  self-
insurer,  including  the  chair  on the group self-insurer's behalf, may
execute an assumption of workers' compensation liability insurance poli-
cy securing such further and future contingent liability  as  may  arise
from  prior  injuries to workers and be incurred by reason of any change
in the condition of such workers warranting the board making  subsequent
awards for payment of additional compensation. Such policy shall be in a
form approved by the superintendent of insurance and issued by the state
fund  or any insurance company licensed to issue this class of insurance
in this state.  In the event that such policy is issued by an  insurance
company  other  than the state fund, then said policy shall be deemed of
the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of subsection (a) of section one
thousand one hundred thirteen of the insurance law and  covered  by  the

S. 2807                            19                            A. 4007

workers'  compensation  security fund as created and governed by article
six-A of this chapter.  It shall only be issued for  a  single  complete
premium  payment  in  advance by the group self-insurer and in an amount
deemed  acceptable  by the chair and the superintendent of insurance. In
lieu of the applicable premium charge ordinarily required to be  imposed
by  a carrier, said premium shall include a surcharge in an amount to be
determined by the chair to: (i) satisfy all assessment liability due and
owing to the board and/or the chair under this chapter; and (ii) satisfy
all future assessment liability under this section. Said surcharge shall
be payable to the board simultaneous to the execution of the  assumption
of  workers'  compensation  liability  insurance  policy.  However,  the
payment of said surcharge does not relieve the carrier  from  any  other
liability,  including  liability owed to the superintendent of insurance
pursuant to article six-A of this chapter.    When  issued  such  policy
shall  be  noncancellable  without  recourse  for  any  cause during the
continuance of the liability secured and so covered.
  (10) (A) A NON-MUNICIPAL GROUP OF EMPLOYERS MAY  MAKE  APPLICATION  TO
THE CHAIR TO QUALIFY JOINTLY AS A SELF-INSURER, PROVIDED:
  (1)  THE MEMBERS OF THE GROUP SECURE THE SERVICES OF AN ADMINISTRATOR,
WHO SHALL CARRY OUT THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF SUCH AN ADMINISTRATOR AS SET

ACCORDANCE  WITH  THIS  SUBDIVISION  PRIOR TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THIS
PARAGRAPH;
  (4) THE GROUP'S MEMBERS FALL WITHIN A LIMITED NUMBER OF PAYROLL  CLAS-
SIFICATIONS,  AS SET BY THE CHAIR, AFTER GIVING DUE CONSIDERATION TO THE
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH  ANY  GROUP  OF  EMPLOYERS  SELF-INSURING  OR  THE
PARTICIPANT  EMPLOYERS  ARE  PARTIES  TO  THE SAME COLLECTIVE BARGAINING
AGREEMENT;
  (5) THE GROUP WAS FULLY FUNDED FOR  FOUR  OUT  OF  THE  PREVIOUS  FIVE
YEARS,  AS DETERMINED BY THE CHAIR FOLLOWING A FINANCIAL REVIEW, AND THE
GROUP SELF-INSURER HAS SUFFICIENT FUNDS TO MEET ITS LIABILITIES;
  (6) THE GROUP HAS A SAFETY PROGRAM ACCEPTABLE TO THE CHAIR; AND
  (7) THE GROUP IS SUBJECT TO SUCH OTHER LIMITATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS OF
THIS SUBDIVISION UNLESS WAIVED BY THE CHAIR AND TO  REGULATIONS  OF  THE
CHAIR.
  (B)  THE MEMBERS OF ANY SUCH GROUP SHALL ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT AMONG
THEMSELVES AND WITH THE GROUP'S ADMINISTRATOR WHICH SHALL, AT A MINIMUM:
  (1) INDICATE THAT EACH OF THE MEMBERS OF  THE  GROUP  IS  JOINTLY  AND
SEVERALLY LIABLE FOR ANY LIABILITIES OF THE GROUP; AND
  (2)  PROVIDE FOR THE COLLECTION OF ADDITIONAL FUNDS FROM GROUP MEMBERS

S. 2807                            20                            A. 4007

MENTS PROVIDED FOR BY THIS SECTION UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE GROUP SELF-IN-
SURER NO LONGER POSSESSES ANY LIABILITIES.
  (12)  ANY  NON-MUNICIPAL  GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE
UNDER PARAGRAPH TEN OF THIS SECTION ON OR AFTER JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOU-
SAND TWELVE SHALL BE DEEMED A "PRIVATE SELF-INSURER" FOR PURPOSES OF THE
ASSESSMENTS SET FORTH IN SECTIONS FIFTEEN AND ONE HUNDRED  FIFTY-ONE  OF
THIS CHAPTER.
  S  4.  Subparagraph 2 of paragraph b of subdivision 5 of section 50 of
the workers' compensation law is REPEALED.
  S 5. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 of section 141-a of  the  workers'
compensation  law, as added by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, is amended
to read as follows:
  (a) Whenever the chair determines that an employer who is required  to
secure compensation in accordance with this chapter has failed to secure
such  compensation,  or  where  an  employer has failed to pay penalties
assessed against it pursuant to this chapter, OR FAILED TO PAY  A  JUDG-
MENT  UNDER  SECTION TWENTY-SIX OF THIS CHAPTER WITHIN NINETY DAYS AFTER
NOTICE TO THE EMPLOYER AND HAS NOT MOVED TO MODIFY OR VACATE SUCH  JUDG-
MENT, such failure shall be deemed an immediate serious danger to public
health, safety, or welfare sufficient to justify service by the chair of
a  stop-work order on the employer, requiring the cessation of all busi-
ness operations effective immediately, except where the employer's fail-
ure concerns only domestic or child care  workers  in  his  or  her  own
household. The chair may issue such order, which shall take effect as to
a  particular  employer  worksite when served at that worksite, or as to
all employer worksites in the state for which the  employer  is  not  in
compliance  when served on the employer. A stop-work order may be served
with regard to an employer's worksite by posting a copy of the stop-work
order in a conspicuous location at the worksite. The order shall  remain
in  effect  until the chair directs that the stop-work order be removed,
upon a determination that the employer has come into compliance with the
coverage requirements of this chapter and has paid any penalty  assessed
under  this  chapter.  If  the  employer  shall within thirty days after
notice of the stop-work order make an application in affidavit form  for
a  redetermination  review of such order the chair shall make a decision
in writing on the issues raised  in  such  application.  The  chair  may
direct  a conditional release from a stop-work order upon a finding that
the employer has complied with coverage requirements of this chapter and
has agreed to remit periodic payments  of  the  penalty  pursuant  to  a
payment  agreement  schedule with the chair. If an agreement or order of
conditional release is issued, failure by the employer to meet any  term
or  condition  of  such  payment agreement shall result in the immediate
reinstatement of the stop-work order and the entire  unpaid  balance  of
the  penalty  shall  become  immediately  due.  The chair may require an
employer who is found  to  have  failed  to  comply  with  the  coverage
requirements  of  this chapter to file with the board, as a condition of
release from a stop-work order,  periodic  reports  for  a  probationary
period that shall not exceed two years, and that demonstrate the employ-
er's  continued  compliance  with  this chapter. The board shall by rule
specify the reports required and the time for filing under this subdivi-
sion.
  S 6. Paragraphs (b) and (c) of subdivision 2 of  section  151  of  the
workers' compensation law, paragraph (b) as amended by section 2 of part
QQ  of  chapter  56  of the laws of 2009 and paragraph (c) as amended by
chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, are amended to read as follows:

S. 2807                            21                            A. 4007

  (b) An itemized statement of the expenses so ascertained shall be open
to public inspection in the office of the board for  thirty  days  after
notice to the state insurance fund, all insurance carriers and all self-
insurers  [including  group  self-insurers] affected thereby, before the
board shall make an assessment for such expenses. The chair shall assess
upon  and  collect a proportion of such expenses as hereinafter provided
from each insurance carrier, the state insurance fund and each  self-in-
surer  [including group self-insurers]. The assessment for such expenses
shall be allocated to (i) self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and
the state insurance fund  based  upon  the  proportion  that  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers] and the state insurance fund in such  year  bore  to  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers], the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group
self-insurers] and (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the  proportion
that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance carriers in
such year bore to the total compensation payments by all  self-insurers,
the  state  insurance  fund and all insurance carriers[, and (iii) group
self-insurers based upon the  proportion  that  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all group self-insurers in such year bore to the total
compensation payments made by all  self-insurers,  the  state  insurance
fund and all insurance carriers]. The portion of the assessment for such
expenses allocated to self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state  insurance  fund  that  shall  be collected from each self-insurer
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund shall be a sum
equal to the proportion of  the  amount  which  the  total  compensation
payments  of each such self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] or the
state insurance fund  in  such  year  bore  to  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state insurance fund. The portion of the assessment  for  such  expenses
allocated  to  insurance carriers that shall be collected from each such
insurance carrier shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the  amount
which  the total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to
the total standard premium reported by all insurance  carriers  for  the
calendar  year  which  ended with the state fiscal year. [The portion of
such sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be  collected  from
each  group  self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the
amount which the pure premium calculation for each such  group  self-in-
surer  bore to the total pure premium calculation for all group self-in-
surers for the calendar year which ended within the state fiscal  year.]
The  amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses of
administering this chapter.  [Pure premium for assessments against indi-
vidual and group self-insurers who ceased to self-insure shall be  based
on  payroll  at the time the individual or group self-insurer has ceased
to self-insure, reduced by a factor  reflecting  the  reduction  in  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since
ceasing to self-insure.]
  For purposes of this paragraph,  "standard  premium"  shall  mean  the
premium  as  defined  for  the purposes of this assessment by the super-
intendent of insurance, in consultation with the chair of the board  and
the  workers' compensation rating board. [For purposes of this paragraph
"pure premium calculation" means the New York state annual payroll as of
December thirty-first of the preceding  year  by  class  code  for  each
employer  member  of  a  group self-insurer multiplied by the applicable
rate for each class code as  determined  by  the  workers'  compensation
rating  board in effect on December thirty-first of the preceding year.]

The amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses  of
administering this chapter.
  For the purposes of this paragraph, the term "insurance carrier" shall
include  only  stock  corporations,  mutual  corporations and reciprocal
insurers authorized to transact the business  of  workers'  compensation
insurance  in  this  state and the term "self-insurer" shall include any
employer or group of employers permitted to  pay  compensation  directly
under  the  provisions  of subdivision three, three-a or four of section
fifty of this chapter.  FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, A "SELF-INSUR-
ER" SHALL BE: (I) AN EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE  UNDER  SUBDIVI-
SION THREE OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, OR ACTIVE GROUPS AUTHORIZED
PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF  SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, A
GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO  SELF-INSURE  UNDER  PARAGRAPH  TEN  OF
SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER; OR (II) A PUBLIC
EMPLOYER AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A  OF  SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  SECTION
FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE,
THREE-A OR FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY OR ARTICLE FIVE OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETH-
ER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  (c) Assessments for the special disability fund, the fund for reopened
cases  and for the operations of the board shall not constitute elements
of loss but shall for collection purposes be treated as  separate  costs

  Section 1. The opening paragraph of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section 1 of part QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009, is amended to
read as follows:
  As  soon  as  practicable after May first in the year nineteen hundred
fifty-eight, and annually thereafter as soon as practicable after  Janu-
ary  first  in each succeeding year, the chair of the board shall assess
upon and collect from all self-insurers[, except  group  self-insurers],
the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group self-in-
surers,]  (A)  a  sum equal to one hundred fifty per centum of the total
disbursements made from the special disability fund during the preceding
calendar year (not including any disbursements made on account of antic-
ipated liabilities or waiver agreements  funded  by  bond  proceeds  and
related  earnings), less the amount of the net assets in such fund as of
December thirty-first of said preceding calendar year,  and  (B)  a  sum
sufficient  to  cover  debt  service,  and  associated  costs (the "debt
service assessment") to be paid during the calendar year by the dormito-
ry authority, as calculated in accordance with subparagraph five of this
paragraph. Such assessments shall  be  allocated  to  (i)  self-insurers
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund based upon the
proportion  that the total compensation payments made by all self-insur-
ers [except group self-insurers] and the state insurance  fund  bore  to
the  total compensation payments made by all self-insurers [except group
self-insurers], the state insurance fund,  AND  all  insurance  carriers
[and  group  self-insurers],  AND (ii) insurance carriers based upon the
proportion that the total compensation payments made  by  all  insurance
carriers  bore  to  the total compensation payments by all self-insurers
[except group self-insurers], the state insurance fund and all insurance
carriers [and group self-insurers] during the fiscal  year  which  ended
within  said  preceding  calendar  year[,  and (iii) group self-insurers
based upon the proportion that the total compensation payments  made  by
all  group self-insurers bore to the total compensation payments made by
all self-insurers, the state insurance fund and all  insurance  carriers
during the fiscal year which ended within said preceding calendar year].
Insurance  carriers  and  self-insurers  shall  be  liable  for all such
assessments regardless of the date on which they came into existence, or
whether they have made any claim  for  reimbursement  from  the  special
disability  fund.  The  portion  of  such sum allocated to self-insurers

S. 2807--A                         14                         A. 4007--A

[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund that shall  be
collected  from  each self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] and the
state insurance fund shall be a sum  equal  to  the  proportion  of  the
amount  which  the total compensation payments of each such self-insurer
[except a group self-insurer] or the state insurance fund  bore  to  the
total  compensation  payments  made  by  all self-insurers [except group
self-insurers] and the state insurance fund during the fiscal year which
ended within said preceding calendar year. The portion of such sum allo-
cated to insurance carriers that shall be collected from each  insurance
carrier  shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount which the
total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to the  total
standard  premium reported by all insurance carriers during the calendar
year which ended within said preceding fiscal year. [The portion of such
sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be collected  from  each
group self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount
which the pure premium calculation for each such group self-insurer bore
to  the  total  pure premium calculation for all group self-insurers for
the calendar year which ended within the preceding state  fiscal  year.]
The  payments  from  the  debt  service assessment, unless otherwise set
forth in the special disability fund  financing  agreement,  are  hereby
pledged  therefor  and  shall  be  deemed  the  first monies received on
account of assessments in each year. For the purposes of this paragraph,
"standard premium" shall mean the premium as defined for the purposes of
this assessment by the superintendent of insurance, in consultation with
the chair of the board and the workers' compensation rating board.  [For
purposes of this paragraph "pure premium calculation" means the New York
state  annual  payroll as of December thirty-first of the preceding year
by class code for each employer member of a  group  self-insurer  multi-
plied  by  the applicable loss cost for each class code as determined by
the workers' compensation rating board in  effect  on  December  thirty-
first  of the preceding year, and for a group or individual self-insurer
who has ceased to self-insure shall be based on payroll at the time  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer  ceased  to self-insure reduced by a
factor reflecting  the  reduction  in  the  group  or  individual  self-
insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since ceasing to self-insure.] An
employer who has ceased to be a self-insurer [or a group that ceases  to
be licensed as a group self-insurer] shall continue to be liable for any
assessments  into said fund on account of any compensation payments made
by him or her on his or her account during such  fiscal  year,  and  the
security fund, created under the provisions of section one hundred seven
of  this chapter, shall, in the event of the insolvency of any insurance
company, be liable for any assessments that would have been made against
such company except for its insolvency. No assessment shall  be  payable
from  the  aggregate trust fund, created under the provisions of section
twenty-seven of this article, but such fund shall continue to be  liable
for  all  compensation that shall be payable under any award or order of
the board, the commuted value of which has been  paid  into  such  fund.
Such assessments when collected shall be deposited with the commissioner
of  taxation  and finance for the benefit of such fund. Unless otherwise
provided, such assessments, shall not constitute an element of loss  for
the  purpose  of establishing rates for compensation insurance but shall
for the purpose of collection be treated as separate costs by  carriers.
All  insurance carriers and the state insurance fund, shall collect such
assessments, from their  policyholders  through  a  surcharge  based  on
premiums  in  accordance  with  rules set forth by the superintendent of
insurance in consultation with the New York workers' compensation rating

S. 2807--A                         15                         A. 4007--A

board and the chair of the board. Such surcharge shall be considered  as
part of premium for purposes prescribed by law including, but not limit-
ed  to, computing premium tax, reporting to the superintendent of insur-
ance  pursuant  to section ninety-nine of this chapter and section three
hundred seven of  the  insurance  law,  determining  the  limitation  of
expenditures for the administration of the state insurance fund pursuant
to  section  eighty-eight  of  this  chapter  and the cancellation by an
insurance carrier, including the state insurance fund, of a  policy  for
non-payment of premium. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply
with  respect to policies containing coverage pursuant to subsection (j)
of section three thousand four  hundred  twenty  of  the  insurance  law
relating  to  every  policy  providing  comprehensive personal liability
insurance on a one, two, three or four family  owner-occupied  dwelling.
The  state insurance fund shall[,] notify its insureds that such assess-
ments, shall be, for the purpose  of  recoupment,  treated  as  separate
costs,  [respectively]  for  the  purpose of premiums billed on or after
October first, nineteen hundred ninety-four.  FOR THE PURPOSES  OF  THIS
SECTION,  A  "SELF-INSURER"  SHALL  BE:    (I) AN EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED TO
SELF-INSURE UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE OF SECTION FIFTY  OF  THIS  CHAPTER,
ACTIVE  GROUPS  AUTHORIZED  PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION THREE-A OF SECTION
FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER OR A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO  SELF-INSURE
UNDER  PARAGRAPH  TEN  OF  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS
CHAPTER; OR (II) A PUBLIC EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED AS SET FORTH IN  PARAGRAPH
A  OF  SUBDIVISION  FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER TO SELF-INSURE
UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE, THREE-A OR FOUR OF SUCH SECTION OR ARTICLE FIVE
OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETHER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  S 2. Subdivision 3 of section 50 of the workers' compensation law,  as
amended  by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, the second undesignated para-
graph as amended by section 3 of part R of chapter 56  of  the  laws  of
2010, is amended to read as follows:
  3.  By  furnishing  satisfactory  proof  to the chair of his financial
ability to pay such compensation for himself, OR  TO  PAY  SUCH  COMPEN-
SATION  ON BEHALF OF A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDIVISION
TEN OF THIS SECTION, in which case the chair shall require  the  deposit
with the chair of such securities as the chair may deem necessary of the
kind  prescribed  in  subdivisions  one,  two, three, four and five, and
subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section  two
hundred  thirty-five  of the banking law, or the deposit of cash, or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in  an  amount to be determined by the chair, or the posting and
filing as aforesaid of a combination of such  securities,  cash,  irrev-
ocable  letters  of credit and surety bond in an amount to be determined
by the chair, to secure his liability to pay the  compensation  provided
in this chapter. Any such surety bond must be approved as to form by the
chair.  If  an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS posts and files a combina-
tion of securities, cash, irrevocable letters of credit and surety  bond
as  aforesaid,  and  if  it becomes necessary to use the same to pay the
compensation provided in this chapter, the chair shall  first  use  such
securities  or  cash or irrevocable letters of credit and, when the full
amount thereof has been exhausted, he shall then require the  surety  to
pay  forthwith to the chair all or any part of the penal sum of the bond
for that purpose. The chair may also require an agreement on the part of
the employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to  pay  any  awards  commuted  under
section twenty-seven of this chapter, into the special fund of the state

S. 2807--A                         16                         A. 4007--A

fund,  as  a condition of his being allowed to remain uninsured pursuant
to this section. The chair shall have the authority to deny the applica-
tion of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to pay such  compensation  for
himself  or  to  revoke his consent furnished, under this section at any
time, for good cause shown. The employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS  qualify-
ing under this subdivision shall be known as a self-insurer.
  If  for  any  reason  the  status of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS
under this subdivision is terminated, the securities or the surety bond,
or the securities, cash, or irrevocable letters  of  credit  and  surety
bond,  on  deposit referred to herein shall remain in the custody of the
chair for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted under the
circumstances. In lieu thereof, and at the discretion of the chair,  the
employer, his or her heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidat-
ing  such  business,  may execute an assumption of workers' compensation
liability insurance policy securing such further and  future  contingent
liability as may arise from prior injuries to workers and be incurred by
reason  of  any change in condition of such workers warranting the board
making subsequent awards for payment of  additional  compensation.  Such
policy  shall  be  in a form approved by the superintendent of insurance
and issued by the state fund or any insurance company licensed to  issue
this  class of insurance in this state. In the event that such policy is
issued by an insurance company other than  the  state  fund,  then  said
policy  shall  be  deemed  of the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of
subsection (a) of section one  thousand  one  hundred  thirteen  of  the
insurance  law and covered by the workers' compensation security fund as
created and governed by article six-A of this chapter. It shall only  be
issued  for a single complete premium payment in advance by the employer
OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS and in an amount deemed acceptable  by  the  chair
and  the  superintendent of insurance. In lieu of the applicable premium
charge ordinarily required to be imposed  by  a  carrier,  said  premium
shall include a surcharge in an amount to be determined by the chair to:
(i)  satisfy  all assessment liability due and owing to the board and/or
the chair under this chapter; and (ii)  satisfy  all  future  assessment
liability  under  this  section.  Said surcharge shall be payable to the
board simultaneous to  the  execution  of  the  assumption  of  workers'
compensation  liability  insurance  policy. However, the payment of said
surcharge does not relieve the carrier from any other liability, includ-
ing liability owed to the superintendent of insurance pursuant to  arti-
cle  [six-a]  SIX-A  of this chapter.   When issued such policy shall be
non-cancellable without recourse for any cause during the continuance of
the liability secured and so covered.
  [The board will report to the  governor  and  the  legislature  on  or
before  December  first,  two thousand seven, as to the advisability and
feasibility of (1) implementing a statewide self-insured  employer  bond
program, and (2) an improved individual employer bond program.]
  S  3.  Paragraph  9  of  subdivision 3-a of section 50 of the workers'
compensation law is REPEALED and paragraph 2  and  subparagraph  (a)  of
paragraph  7, paragraph 2 as amended by chapter 139 of the laws of 2008,
and subparagraph (a) of paragraph 7 as amended by section 4 of part R of
chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, are amended and three new paragraphs 10,
11 and 12 are added to read as follows:
  (2) (a) Any group consisting exclusively of such employers may adopt a
plan for self-insurance, as a group, for  the  payment  of  compensation
under  this  chapter  to  their employees, except that no new groups may
adopt such a plan [prior to April first,  two  thousand  nine],  AND  NO
GROUP NOT COMPOSED SOLELY OF PUBLIC ENTITIES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A OF

S. 2807--A                         17                         A. 4007--A

SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  THIS  SECTION  MAY INSURE ANY LIABILITIES FOR ANY
EMPLOYERS ON AND AFTER JANUARY FIRST, TWO  THOUSAND  TWELVE,  EXCEPT  AS
PROVIDED  FOR  IN PARAGRAPH TEN OF THIS SUBDIVISION. Under such plan the
group  shall  assume the liability of all the employers within the group
and pay all compensation for which the said employers are  liable  under
this chapter, except that in the case of municipal corporations as here-
in  defined  no  proof  of financial ability or deposit of securities or
cash need be made in compliance with this subdivision.  The group quali-
fying under this subdivision shall be known as a group self-insurer  and
the  employers  participating therein and covered thereby shall be known
as members.
  (b) Where such plan is adopted the group  self-insurer  shall  furnish
satisfactory  proof  to  the  chair of its financial ability to pay such
compensation for the members in the industry covered by it,  its  reven-
ues,  their source and assurance of continuance. The chair shall require
the deposit with the chair of such securities as may be deemed necessary
of the kind prescribed in subdivisions one, two, three, four  and  five,
and  subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section
two hundred thirty-five of the banking law or the deposit of cash or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in an amount to be determined to secure its liability to pay the
compensation of each employer as above provided.  Such surety bond  must
be  approved as to form by the chair. The chair shall require each group
self-insurer to provide regular reports no  less  than  annually,  which
shall  include but not be limited to audited financial statements, actu-
arial opinions and payroll information containing proof that it is fully
funded. Such reports shall also include  a  contribution  year  analysis
detailing  contributions  and  expenses  associated  with  each specific
contribution year. For purposes of this paragraph, proof  that  a  group
self-insurer  is  fully funded shall at a minimum include proof of unre-
stricted cash and investments permitted by regulation of the chair of at
least one hundred percent of the total liabilities, including the  esti-
mate  presented in the actuarial opinion submitted by the group self-in-
surer in accordance with this chapter. The chair by regulation, may  set
further  financial standards for group self-insurers. Any group self-in-
surer that fails to show that it is fully funded shall be deemed  under-
funded,  and  must submit a plan for achieving fully funded status which
may include a deficit assessment on members of such  group  self-insurer
which  shall  be  subject to approval or modification by the chair. [The
chair may impose such limitations on admission of new members or  offer-
ing  of discounts on underfunded group self-insurers to insure that such
group self-insurers shall become fully funded. Should the group self-in-
surer fail to meet the terms of its plan, the chair  may  condition  its
continued  authorization  to act as a group self-insurer on the appoint-
ment of an outside monitor selected by the chair,  at  the  group  self-
insurer's  expense.  Effective January first, two thousand fourteen, any
group self-insurer that fails to show it is fully funded  in  accordance
with  this  paragraph  and the regulations issued pursuant thereto shall
have one year to cure the deficiency. If such deficiency  is  not  cured
within  one  year,  the  group self-insurer shall be given six months to
terminate its coverage.]
  (c) The chair shall evaluate, no less than once every three  years,  a
group  self-insurer's  compliance  with  the  financial  and  regulatory
requirements for self-insurance. The  chair  may  engage  any  qualified

S. 2807--A                         18                         A. 4007--A

person  or  organization  to  assist  with such evaluation and any costs
incurred by the chair shall be borne by  the  group  self-insurer  under
examination. Failure to submit to such independent review or to pay such
costs,  upon  demand of the chair, shall be sufficient grounds to termi-
nate coverage of the group self-insurer.
  (d) The chair may require reports to be prepared by an auditor,  actu-
ary  or  other  consultant,  selected  by  the  board or, at the chair's
discretion, by the group self-insurer from a list which shall be pre-ap-
proved by the chair to determine whether the  group  self-insurer  meets
the  financial  criteria  for  self-insurance. All actuaries so selected
shall be fellows or associates of the casualty actuarial society.
  (e) The chair may also require that any and all agreements,  contracts
and  other  pertinent  documents  relating  to  the  organization of the
members in the group self-insurer shall be filed [at the time the appli-
cation for group self-insurance is  made  or  anytime  thereafter.  Such
application  shall  be  on a form prescribed by the chair. The chair may
also require an agreement on the part of said group self-insurer to  pay
any  awards commuted under section twenty-seven of this chapter into the
aggregate trust fund as a condition of its being allowed to operate as a
group self-insurer pursuant to this subdivision] WITH THE CHAIR.
  (f) The chair shall have the authority to [deny the application of the
group self-insurer to  pay  such  compensation  or  to]  revoke  consent
furnished under this section at any time for good cause shown.
  (g)  At least twenty days prior to the requested effective date of the
participating agreement, a group self-insurer shall notify the chair  on
a  prescribed  form  of  a  new group self-insurer member and file (1) a
member application and (2) a copy of the  properly  executed  prescribed
participation  agreement wherein the member acknowledges their joint and
several obligation for their period of membership. The board shall, on a
form promulgated by the chair, provide notice of the member's rights and
responsibilities as a group self-insurer member, including the  member's
assumption  of  joint  and  several liability, and require the member to
return a signed copy to the chair as a  condition  of  membership.  Such
membership  shall  not  become  effective until the signed copy has been
received by the board.
  (h) Any member terminating membership in a  group  self-insurer  after
less  than  four  years  in such group self-insurer, and any member in a
group self-insurer that has defaulted, shall be precluded from obtaining
prospective coverage from any group self-insurer  for  a  period  of  at
least three years from the effective date of termination.
  (a)  If  for any reason, the status of a group self-insurer under this
subdivision is terminated, INCLUDING BY OPERATION OF LAW  ON  AND  AFTER
JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, the securities or cash or the surety
bond  on  deposit  referred to herein shall remain in the custody of the
chair for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted. In  lieu
thereof, and at the discretion of the chair, the group self-insurer, its
heirs  or  assigns or others carrying on or liquidating such group self-
insurer, including the chair on the  group  self-insurer's  behalf,  may
execute an assumption of workers' compensation liability insurance poli-
cy  securing  such  further and future contingent liability as may arise
from prior injuries to workers and be incurred by reason of  any  change
in  the condition of such workers warranting the board making subsequent
awards for payment of additional compensation. Such policy shall be in a
form approved by the superintendent of insurance and issued by the state
fund or any insurance company licensed to issue this class of  insurance
in  this state.  In the event that such policy is issued by an insurance

S. 2807--A                         19                         A. 4007--A

company other than the state fund, then said policy shall be  deemed  of
the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of subsection (a) of section one
thousand  one  hundred  thirteen of the insurance law and covered by the
workers'  compensation  security fund as created and governed by article
six-A of this chapter.  It shall only be issued for  a  single  complete
premium  payment  in  advance by the group self-insurer and in an amount
deemed acceptable by the chair and the superintendent of  insurance.  In
lieu  of the applicable premium charge ordinarily required to be imposed
by a carrier, said premium shall include a surcharge in an amount to  be
determined by the chair to: (i) satisfy all assessment liability due and
owing to the board and/or the chair under this chapter; and (ii) satisfy
all future assessment liability under this section. Said surcharge shall
be  payable to the board simultaneous to the execution of the assumption
of  workers'  compensation  liability  insurance  policy.  However,  the
payment  of  said  surcharge does not relieve the carrier from any other
liability, including liability owed to the superintendent  of  insurance
pursuant  to  article  six-A  of this chapter.   When issued such policy
shall be noncancellable  without  recourse  for  any  cause  during  the
continuance of the liability secured and so covered.
  (10)  (A)  A  NON-MUNICIPAL GROUP OF EMPLOYERS MAY MAKE APPLICATION TO
THE CHAIR TO QUALIFY JOINTLY AS A SELF-INSURER, PROVIDED:
  (1) THE MEMBERS OF THE GROUP SECURE THE SERVICES OF AN  ADMINISTRATOR,

  S 5. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 of section 141-a of  the  workers'
compensation  law, as added by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, is amended
to read as follows:
  (a) Whenever the chair determines that an employer who is required  to
secure compensation in accordance with this chapter has failed to secure
such  compensation,  or  where  an  employer has failed to pay penalties
assessed against it pursuant to this chapter, OR FAILED TO PAY  A  JUDG-
MENT  UNDER  SECTION TWENTY-SIX OF THIS CHAPTER WITHIN NINETY DAYS AFTER
NOTICE TO THE EMPLOYER AND HAS NOT MOVED TO MODIFY OR VACATE SUCH  JUDG-
MENT, such failure shall be deemed an immediate serious danger to public
health, safety, or welfare sufficient to justify service by the chair of
a  stop-work order on the employer, requiring the cessation of all busi-
ness operations effective immediately, except where the employer's fail-
ure concerns only domestic or child care  workers  in  his  or  her  own
household. The chair may issue such order, which shall take effect as to
a  particular  employer  worksite when served at that worksite, or as to
all employer worksites in the state for which the  employer  is  not  in
compliance  when served on the employer. A stop-work order may be served
with regard to an employer's worksite by posting a copy of the stop-work
order in a conspicuous location at the worksite. The order shall  remain
in  effect  until the chair directs that the stop-work order be removed,
upon a determination that the employer has come into compliance with the
coverage requirements of this chapter and has paid any penalty  assessed
under  this  chapter.  If  the  employer  shall within thirty days after
notice of the stop-work order make an application in affidavit form  for
a  redetermination  review of such order the chair shall make a decision
in writing on the issues raised  in  such  application.  The  chair  may
direct  a conditional release from a stop-work order upon a finding that
the employer has complied with coverage requirements of this chapter and
has agreed to remit periodic payments  of  the  penalty  pursuant  to  a
payment  agreement  schedule with the chair. If an agreement or order of
conditional release is issued, failure by the employer to meet any  term
or  condition  of  such  payment agreement shall result in the immediate
reinstatement of the stop-work order and the entire  unpaid  balance  of
the  penalty  shall  become  immediately  due.  The chair may require an
employer who is found  to  have  failed  to  comply  with  the  coverage
requirements  of  this chapter to file with the board, as a condition of
release from a stop-work order,  periodic  reports  for  a  probationary
period that shall not exceed two years, and that demonstrate the employ-
er's  continued  compliance  with  this chapter. The board shall by rule
specify the reports required and the time for filing under this subdivi-
sion.

workers' compensation law, paragraph (b) as amended by section 2 of part

S. 2807--A                         21                         A. 4007--A

QQ  of  chapter  56  of the laws of 2009 and paragraph (c) as amended by
chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, are amended to read as follows:
  (b) An itemized statement of the expenses so ascertained shall be open
to  public  inspection  in the office of the board for thirty days after
notice to the state insurance fund, all insurance carriers and all self-
insurers [including group self-insurers] affected  thereby,  before  the
board shall make an assessment for such expenses. The chair shall assess
upon  and  collect a proportion of such expenses as hereinafter provided
from each insurance carrier, the state insurance fund and each  self-in-
surer  [including group self-insurers]. The assessment for such expenses
shall be allocated to (i) self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and
the state insurance fund  based  upon  the  proportion  that  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers] and the state insurance fund in such  year  bore  to  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers], the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group
self-insurers] and (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the  proportion
that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance carriers in
such year bore to the total compensation payments by all  self-insurers,
the  state  insurance  fund and all insurance carriers[, and (iii) group
self-insurers based upon the  proportion  that  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all group self-insurers in such year bore to the total
compensation payments made by all  self-insurers,  the  state  insurance
fund and all insurance carriers]. The portion of the assessment for such
expenses allocated to self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state  insurance  fund  that  shall  be collected from each self-insurer
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund shall be a sum
equal to the proportion of  the  amount  which  the  total  compensation
payments  of each such self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] or the
state insurance fund  in  such  year  bore  to  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state insurance fund. The portion of the assessment  for  such  expenses
allocated  to  insurance carriers that shall be collected from each such
insurance carrier shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the  amount
which  the total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to
the total standard premium reported by all insurance  carriers  for  the
calendar  year  which  ended with the state fiscal year. [The portion of
such sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be  collected  from
each  group  self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the
amount which the pure premium calculation for each such  group  self-in-
surer  bore to the total pure premium calculation for all group self-in-
surers for the calendar year which ended within the state fiscal  year.]
The  amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses of
administering this chapter.  [Pure premium for assessments against indi-
vidual and group self-insurers who ceased to self-insure shall be  based
on  payroll  at the time the individual or group self-insurer has ceased
to self-insure, reduced by a factor  reflecting  the  reduction  in  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since
ceasing to self-insure.]
  For purposes of this paragraph,  "standard  premium"  shall  mean  the
premium  as  defined  for  the purposes of this assessment by the super-
intendent of insurance, in consultation with the chair of the board  and
the  workers' compensation rating board. [For purposes of this paragraph
"pure premium calculation" means the New York state annual payroll as of
December thirty-first of the preceding  year  by  class  code  for  each
employer  member  of  a  group self-insurer multiplied by the applicable

S. 2807--A                         22                         A. 4007--A

rate for each class code as  determined  by  the  workers'  compensation
rating  board in effect on December thirty-first of the preceding year.]
The amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses  of
administering this chapter.
  For the purposes of this paragraph, the term "insurance carrier" shall
include  only  stock  corporations,  mutual  corporations and reciprocal
insurers authorized to transact the business  of  workers'  compensation
insurance  in  this  state and the term "self-insurer" shall include any
employer or group of employers permitted to  pay  compensation  directly
under  the  provisions  of subdivision three, three-a or four of section
fifty of this chapter.  FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, A "SELF-INSUR-
ER" SHALL BE: (I) AN EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE  UNDER  SUBDIVI-
SION THREE OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, OR ACTIVE GROUPS AUTHORIZED
PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF  SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, A
GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO  SELF-INSURE  UNDER  PARAGRAPH  TEN  OF
SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER; OR (II) A PUBLIC
EMPLOYER AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A  OF  SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  SECTION
FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE,
THREE-A OR FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY OR ARTICLE FIVE OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETH-
ER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  (c) Assessments for the special disability fund, the fund for reopened
cases  and for the operations of the board shall not constitute elements
of loss but shall for collection purposes be treated as  separate  costs
by  carriers.  [All  group  self-insurers shall collect such assessments
from their employer members in a fair and equitable manner.] All  insur-
ance  carriers,  including  the state insurance fund, shall collect such
assessments from their policyholders through a surcharge based on premi-
um in accordance with rules set forth by the New York  workers'  compen-
sation  rating  board,  as  approved by the superintendent of insurance.
Such surcharge shall be considered  as  part  of  premium  for  purposes
prescribed  by law including, but not limited to, computing premium tax,
reporting to the superintendent of insurance pursuant to  section  nine-
ty-nine of this chapter and section three hundred seven of the insurance
law,  determining  the limitation of expenditures for the administration
of the state insurance fund pursuant to  section  eighty-eight  of  this
chapter  and  the  cancellation  by  an insurance carrier, including the
state insurance fund, of a policy for non-payment of premium.
  S 7.  This act shall take effect immediately; provided  that  sections
one  and  six  of  this  act shall take effect January 1, 2011 and shall
apply to any assessment cycle beginning on or after such date;  provided
further,  that  in  the  event  that  the  total  amount  of assessments
collected by the chair of the workers' compensation board by May 1, 2011
pursuant to subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of subdivision 8 of  section
15  of  the  workers' compensation law as amended by section one of this
act do not equal at least one hundred ten percent of  the  debt  service
assessment,  as defined in such provision of law, the chair of the work-
ers' compensation board shall, not later  than  June  1,  2011,  and  in
accordance  with  the  provisions  of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section one of this act, assess and collect a supplemental assessment
in an amount equal to the amount that would have  been  due  from  group
self-insurers  in  2011  had  this  act  not  taken effect, and that the
provisions of subparagraph 4  of  paragraph  (h)  of  subdivision  8  of
section  15 of the workers' compensation law shall apply to such supple-
mental assessment in all respects except for the date and amount of such
special assessment and that such special assessment shall be  deemed  an

  Section 1. The opening paragraph of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section 1 of part QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009, is amended to
read as follows:
  As soon as practicable after May first in the  year  nineteen  hundred
fifty-eight,  and annually thereafter as soon as practicable after Janu-
ary first in each succeeding year, the chair of the board  shall  assess
upon  and  collect from all self-insurers[, except group self-insurers],
the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group self-in-
surers,] (A) a sum equal to one hundred fifty per centum  of  the  total
disbursements made from the special disability fund during the preceding
calendar year (not including any disbursements made on account of antic-
ipated  liabilities  or  waiver  agreements  funded by bond proceeds and
related earnings), less the amount of the net assets in such fund as  of
December  thirty-first  of  said  preceding calendar year, and (B) a sum
sufficient to cover  debt  service,  and  associated  costs  (the  "debt
service assessment") to be paid during the calendar year by the dormito-
ry authority, as calculated in accordance with subparagraph five of this
paragraph.  Such  assessments  shall  be  allocated to (i) self-insurers

A. 4007--B                         13

[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund based upon the
proportion that the total compensation payments made by all  self-insur-
ers  [except  group  self-insurers] and the state insurance fund bore to
the  total compensation payments made by all self-insurers [except group
self-insurers], the state insurance fund,  AND  all  insurance  carriers
[and  group  self-insurers],  AND (ii) insurance carriers based upon the
proportion that the total compensation payments made  by  all  insurance
carriers  bore  to  the total compensation payments by all self-insurers
[except group self-insurers], the state insurance fund and all insurance
carriers [and group self-insurers] during the fiscal  year  which  ended
within  said  preceding  calendar  year[,  and (iii) group self-insurers
based upon the proportion that the total compensation payments  made  by
all  group self-insurers bore to the total compensation payments made by
all self-insurers, the state insurance fund and all  insurance  carriers
during the fiscal year which ended within said preceding calendar year].
Insurance  carriers  and  self-insurers  shall  be  liable  for all such
assessments regardless of the date on which they came into existence, or
whether they have made any claim  for  reimbursement  from  the  special
disability  fund.  The  portion  of  such sum allocated to self-insurers
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund that shall  be
collected  from  each self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] and the
state insurance fund shall be a sum  equal  to  the  proportion  of  the
amount  which  the total compensation payments of each such self-insurer
[except a group self-insurer] or the state insurance fund  bore  to  the
total  compensation  payments  made  by  all self-insurers [except group
self-insurers] and the state insurance fund during the fiscal year which
ended within said preceding calendar year. The portion of such sum allo-
cated to insurance carriers that shall be collected from each  insurance
carrier  shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount which the
total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to the  total
standard  premium reported by all insurance carriers during the calendar
year which ended within said preceding fiscal year. [The portion of such
sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be collected  from  each
group self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount
which the pure premium calculation for each such group self-insurer bore
to  the  total  pure premium calculation for all group self-insurers for
the calendar year which ended within the preceding state  fiscal  year.]
The  payments  from  the  debt  service assessment, unless otherwise set
forth in the special disability fund  financing  agreement,  are  hereby
pledged  therefor  and  shall  be  deemed  the  first monies received on
account of assessments in each year. For the purposes of this paragraph,
"standard premium" shall mean the premium as defined for the purposes of
this assessment by the superintendent of insurance, in consultation with
the chair of the board and the workers' compensation rating board.  [For
purposes of this paragraph "pure premium calculation" means the New York
state  annual  payroll as of December thirty-first of the preceding year
by class code for each employer member of a  group  self-insurer  multi-
plied  by  the applicable loss cost for each class code as determined by
the workers' compensation rating board in  effect  on  December  thirty-
first  of the preceding year, and for a group or individual self-insurer
who has ceased to self-insure shall be based on payroll at the time  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer  ceased  to self-insure reduced by a
factor reflecting  the  reduction  in  the  group  or  individual  self-
insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since ceasing to self-insure.] An
employer who has ceased to be a self-insurer [or a group that ceases  to
be licensed as a group self-insurer] shall continue to be liable for any

A. 4007--B                         14

assessments  into said fund on account of any compensation payments made
by him or her on his or her account during such  fiscal  year,  and  the
security fund, created under the provisions of section one hundred seven
of  this chapter, shall, in the event of the insolvency of any insurance
company, be liable for any assessments that would have been made against
such company except for its insolvency. No assessment shall  be  payable
from  the  aggregate trust fund, created under the provisions of section
twenty-seven of this article, but such fund shall continue to be  liable
for  all  compensation that shall be payable under any award or order of
the board, the commuted value of which has been  paid  into  such  fund.
Such assessments when collected shall be deposited with the commissioner
of  taxation  and finance for the benefit of such fund. Unless otherwise
provided, such assessments, shall not constitute an element of loss  for
the  purpose  of establishing rates for compensation insurance but shall
for the purpose of collection be treated as separate costs by  carriers.
All  insurance carriers and the state insurance fund, shall collect such
assessments, from their  policyholders  through  a  surcharge  based  on
premiums  in  accordance  with  rules set forth by the superintendent of
insurance in consultation with the New York workers' compensation rating
board and the chair of the board. Such surcharge shall be considered  as
part of premium for purposes prescribed by law including, but not limit-
ed  to, computing premium tax, reporting to the superintendent of insur-
ance pursuant to section ninety-nine of this chapter and  section  three
hundred  seven  of  the  insurance  law,  determining  the limitation of
expenditures for the administration of the state insurance fund pursuant
to section eighty-eight of this  chapter  and  the  cancellation  by  an
insurance  carrier,  including the state insurance fund, of a policy for
non-payment of premium. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply
with respect to policies containing coverage pursuant to subsection  (j)
of  section  three  thousand  four  hundred  twenty of the insurance law
relating to every  policy  providing  comprehensive  personal  liability
insurance  on  a one, two, three or four family owner-occupied dwelling.
The state insurance fund shall[,] notify its insureds that such  assess-
ments,  shall  be,  for  the  purpose of recoupment, treated as separate
costs, [respectively] for the purpose of premiums  billed  on  or  after
October  first,  nineteen hundred ninety-four.  FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS
SECTION, A "SELF-INSURER" SHALL BE:    (I)  AN  EMPLOYER  AUTHORIZED  TO
SELF-INSURE  UNDER  SUBDIVISION  THREE OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER,
ACTIVE GROUPS AUTHORIZED PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF  SECTION
FIFTY  OF THIS CHAPTER OR A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE
UNDER PARAGRAPH TEN OF SUBDIVISION THREE-A  OF  SECTION  FIFTY  OF  THIS
CHAPTER;  (II)  A PUBLIC EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A
OF SUBDIVISION FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY  OF  THIS  CHAPTER  TO  SELF-INSURE
UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE, THREE-A OR FOUR OF SUCH SECTION OR ARTICLE FIVE
OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETHER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  S  2. The workers' compensation law is amended by adding a new section
15-a to read as follows:
  S 15-A. ASSESSMENT ON DELINQUENT GROUP SELF-INSURED TRUSTS. THE LEGIS-
LATURE FINDS THAT IN LIEU OF  THE  RELIEF  FROM  THE  ASSESSMENTS  UNDER
SECTIONS FIFTEEN AND ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-ONE OF THIS CHAPTER THAT SHALL NO
LONGER  BE  IMPOSED ON CLOSED GROUP SELF-INSURED TRUSTS AS A RESULT OF A
CHAPTER OF THE LAWS  OF  TWO  THOUSAND  ELEVEN,  THE  MEMBERS  OF  GROUP
SELF-INSURED  TRUSTS  THAT  WERE NOT FULLY FUNDED UPON CLOSING, AND THAT
FAIL TO PAY THEIR OBLIGATIONS  WITHIN  THE  PERIODS  SPECIFIED  BY  THIS
SECTION,  SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AN ASSESSMENT. WITHIN THIRTY DAYS OF JANU-
ARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN, ALL EMPLOYERS WHO  WERE  MEMBERS  OF  A

A. 4007--B                         15

CLOSED  GROUP SELF-INSURED TRUST THAT HAD NOT FULLY FUNDED ALL OUTSTAND-
ING CLAIMS OBLIGATIONS AT THE TIME THE GROUP WAS CLOSED SHALL BE SUBJECT
TO AN ASSESSMENT UNDER THIS PARAGRAPH, EXCEPT FOR THOSE EMPLOYERS  THAT:
(1)  HAVE  ENTERED  INTO A SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT OR PAYMENT PLAN WITH THE
BOARD UNDER WHICH THEY HAVE AGREED TO RESOLVE ALL LIABILITIES  FROM  THE
MEMBERSHIP  IN SUCH TRUST, AND REMAIN CURRENT IN THEIR PAYMENTS; (2) ARE
MEMBERS OF A GROUP SELF-INSURER THAT HAS TRANSFERRED ALL OF ITS  LIABIL-
ITIES  TRANSFERRED  VIA  A  LOSS  PORTFOLIO  TRANSFER; (3) HAVE PAID ALL
MONEYS BILLED THEM BY THE BOARD AT THE TIME SUCH ASSESSMENT IS  DUE;  OR
(4)  WHERE  THE  TRUST IS NOT ADMINISTERED BY THE BOARD, CAN DEMONSTRATE
THAT THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THE INACTIVE TRUST HAS ASSESSED SUCH  EMPLOYER
FOR  ITS  PRO RATA SHARE OF THE TRUST'S OUTSTANDING LIABILITIES, AND THE
EMPLOYER HAS PAID SUCH ASSESSMENT. THE TOTAL OF SUCH ASSESSMENT SHALL BE
DETERMINED BY THE PERCENTAGE OF THE ASSESSMENT LEVIED ON  ALL  EMPLOYERS
UNDER  SUBDIVISION EIGHT OF SECTION FIFTEEN OF THIS ARTICLE IN TWO THOU-
SAND TEN THAT WAS LEVIED ON GROUP SELF-INSURED TRUSTS  TIMES  THE  TOTAL
AMOUNT  OF  THE  EMPLOYER'S UNPAID PRO RATA SHARE OF ANY DEFICIT OWED BY
THE CLOSED GROUP SELF-INSURED EMPLOYER OF  WHICH  SUCH  EMPLOYER  WAS  A
MEMBER, AS DETERMINED BY THE BOARD OR THE ADMINISTRATOR OF SUCH TRUST IF
IT IS NOT ADMINISTERED BY THE BOARD. THE AMOUNT RECEIVED ON SUCH ASSESS-
MENT SHALL BE USED AS AN OFFSET AGAINST THE ASSESSMENTS IMPOSED ON OTHER
EMPLOYERS UNDER SUBDIVISION EIGHT OF SECTION FIFTEEN OF THIS ARTICLE AND
SECTION  ONE  HUNDRED  FIFTY-ONE  OF  THIS  CHAPTER IN THE CALENDAR YEAR
FOLLOWING THE YEAR IN WHICH IT WAS RECEIVED.
  S 3. Subdivision 3 of section 50 of the workers' compensation law,  as
amended  by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, the second undesignated para-
graph as amended by section 3 of part R of chapter 56  of  the  laws  of
2010, is amended to read as follows:
  3.  By  furnishing  satisfactory  proof  to the chair of his financial
ability to pay such compensation for himself, OR  TO  PAY  SUCH  COMPEN-
SATION  ON BEHALF OF A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDIVISION
TEN OF THIS SECTION, in which case the chair shall require  the  deposit
with the chair of such securities as the chair may deem necessary of the
kind  prescribed  in  subdivisions  one,  two, three, four and five, and
subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section  two
hundred  thirty-five  of the banking law, or the deposit of cash, or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in  an  amount to be determined by the chair, or the posting and
filing as aforesaid of a combination of such  securities,  cash,  irrev-
ocable  letters  of credit and surety bond in an amount to be determined
by the chair, to secure his liability to pay the  compensation  provided
in this chapter. Any such surety bond must be approved as to form by the
chair.  If  an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS posts and files a combina-
tion of securities, cash, irrevocable letters of credit and surety  bond
as  aforesaid,  and  if  it becomes necessary to use the same to pay the
compensation provided in this chapter, the chair shall  first  use  such
securities  or  cash or irrevocable letters of credit and, when the full
amount thereof has been exhausted, he shall then require the  surety  to
pay  forthwith to the chair all or any part of the penal sum of the bond
for that purpose. The chair may also require an agreement on the part of
the employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to  pay  any  awards  commuted  under
section twenty-seven of this chapter, into the special fund of the state
fund,  as  a condition of his being allowed to remain uninsured pursuant
to this section. The chair shall have the authority to deny the applica-

A. 4007--B                         16

tion of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to pay such  compensation  for
himself  or  to  revoke his consent furnished, under this section at any
time, for good cause shown. The employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS  qualify-
ing under this subdivision shall be known as a self-insurer.
  If  for  any  reason  the  status of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS
under this subdivision is terminated, the securities or the surety bond,
or the securities, cash, or irrevocable letters  of  credit  and  surety
bond,  on  deposit referred to herein shall remain in the custody of the
chair for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted under the
circumstances. In lieu thereof, and at the discretion of the chair,  the
employer, his or her heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidat-
ing  such  business,  may execute an assumption of workers' compensation
liability insurance policy securing such further and  future  contingent
liability as may arise from prior injuries to workers and be incurred by
reason  of  any change in condition of such workers warranting the board
making subsequent awards for payment of  additional  compensation.  Such
policy  shall  be  in a form approved by the superintendent of insurance
and issued by the state fund or any insurance company licensed to  issue
this  class of insurance in this state. In the event that such policy is
issued by an insurance company other than  the  state  fund,  then  said
policy  shall  be  deemed  of the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of
subsection (a) of section one  thousand  one  hundred  thirteen  of  the
insurance  law and covered by the workers' compensation security fund as
created and governed by article six-A of this chapter. It shall only  be
issued  for a single complete premium payment in advance by the employer
OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS and in an amount deemed acceptable  by  the  chair
and  the  superintendent of insurance. In lieu of the applicable premium
charge ordinarily required to be imposed  by  a  carrier,  said  premium
shall include a surcharge in an amount to be determined by the chair to:
(i)  satisfy  all assessment liability due and owing to the board and/or
the chair under this chapter; and (ii)  satisfy  all  future  assessment
liability under this section, AND WHICH SURCHARGE SHALL BE ADJUSTED FROM
TIME  TO TIME TO REFLECT ANY CHANGES TO THE ASSESSMENT OF GROUP SELF-IN-
SURED EMPLOYERS, INCLUDING ANY CHANGES ENACTED BY A CHAPTER OF THE  LAWS
OF  TWO THOUSAND ELEVEN AMENDING SECTIONS FIFTEEN AND ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-
ONE OF THIS CHAPTER.   Said surcharge shall  be  payable  to  the  board
simultaneous to the execution of the assumption of workers' compensation
liability  insurance policy. However, the payment of said surcharge does
not relieve the carrier from any other  liability,  including  liability
owed  to  the  superintendent  of  insurance pursuant to article [six-a]
SIX-A of this chapter. When issued such policy shall be  non-cancellable
without  recourse  for any cause during the continuance of the liability
secured and so covered.
  [The board will report to the  governor  and  the  legislature  on  or
before  December  first,  two thousand seven, as to the advisability and
feasibility of (1) implementing a statewide self-insured  employer  bond
program, and (2) an improved individual employer bond program.]
  S  4.  Paragraph  9  of  subdivision 3-a of section 50 of the workers'
compensation law is REPEALED.
  S 5. Paragraph 2 and subparagraph (a) of paragraph  7  of  subdivision
3-a  of  section  50  of  the  workers' compensation law, paragraph 2 as
amended by chapter 139 of the laws of  2008,  and  subparagraph  (a)  of
paragraph  7 as amended by section 4 of part R of chapter 56 of the laws
of 2010, are amended and three new paragraphs 10, 11 and 12 are added to
read as follows:

A. 4007--B                         17

  (2) (a) Any group consisting exclusively of such employers may adopt a
plan for self-insurance, as a group, for  the  payment  of  compensation
under  this  chapter  to  their employees, except that no new groups may
adopt such a plan [prior to April first,  two  thousand  nine],  AND  NO
GROUP NOT COMPOSED SOLELY OF PUBLIC ENTITIES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A OF
SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  THIS  SECTION  MAY INSURE ANY LIABILITIES FOR ANY
EMPLOYERS ON AND AFTER JANUARY FIRST, TWO  THOUSAND  TWELVE,  EXCEPT  AS
PROVIDED  FOR  IN PARAGRAPH TEN OF THIS SUBDIVISION. Under such plan the
group shall assume the liability of all the employers within  the  group
and  pay  all compensation for which the said employers are liable under
this chapter, except that in the case of municipal corporations as here-
in defined no proof of financial ability or  deposit  of  securities  or
cash need be made in compliance with this subdivision.  The group quali-
fying  under this subdivision shall be known as a group self-insurer and
the employers participating therein and covered thereby shall  be  known
as members.
  (b)  Where  such  plan is adopted the group self-insurer shall furnish
satisfactory proof to the chair of its financial  ability  to  pay  such
compensation  for  the members in the industry covered by it, its reven-
ues, their source and assurance of continuance. The chair shall  require
the deposit with the chair of such securities as may be deemed necessary
of  the  kind prescribed in subdivisions one, two, three, four and five,
and subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of  section
two hundred thirty-five of the banking law or the deposit of cash or the
filing  of  irrevocable  letters of credit issued by a qualified banking
institution as defined by rules promulgated by the chair or  the  filing
of  a  bond  of a surety company authorized to transact business in this
state, in an amount to be determined to secure its liability to pay  the
compensation  of each employer as above provided.  Such surety bond must
be approved as to form by the chair. The chair shall require each  group
self-insurer  to  provide  regular  reports no less than annually, which
shall include but not be limited to audited financial statements,  actu-
arial opinions and payroll information containing proof that it is fully
funded.  Such  reports  shall  also include a contribution year analysis
detailing contributions  and  expenses  associated  with  each  specific
contribution  year.  For  purposes of this paragraph, proof that a group
self-insurer is fully funded shall at a minimum include proof  of  unre-
stricted cash and investments permitted by regulation of the chair of at
least  one hundred percent of the total liabilities, including the esti-
mate presented in the actuarial opinion submitted by the group  self-in-
surer  in accordance with this chapter. The chair by regulation, may set
further financial standards for group self-insurers. Any group  self-in-
surer  that fails to show that it is fully funded shall be deemed under-
funded, and must submit a plan for achieving fully funded  status  which
may  include  a deficit assessment on members of such group self-insurer
which shall be subject to approval or modification by  the  chair.  [The
chair  may impose such limitations on admission of new members or offer-
ing of discounts on underfunded group self-insurers to insure that  such
group self-insurers shall become fully funded. Should the group self-in-
surer  fail  to  meet the terms of its plan, the chair may condition its
continued authorization to act as a group self-insurer on  the  appoint-
ment  of  an  outside  monitor selected by the chair, at the group self-
insurer's expense. Effective January first, two thousand  fourteen,  any
group  self-insurer  that fails to show it is fully funded in accordance
with this paragraph and the regulations issued  pursuant  thereto  shall
have  one  year  to cure the deficiency. If such deficiency is not cured

A. 4007--B                         18

within one year, the group self-insurer shall be  given  six  months  to
terminate its coverage.]
  (c)  The  chair shall evaluate, no less than once every three years, a
group  self-insurer's  compliance  with  the  financial  and  regulatory
requirements  for  self-insurance.  The  chair  may engage any qualified
person or organization to assist with  such  evaluation  and  any  costs
incurred  by  the  chair  shall be borne by the group self-insurer under
examination. Failure to submit to such independent review or to pay such
costs, upon demand of the chair, shall be sufficient grounds  to  termi-
nate coverage of the group self-insurer.
  (d)  The chair may require reports to be prepared by an auditor, actu-
ary or other consultant, selected  by  the  board  or,  at  the  chair's
discretion, by the group self-insurer from a list which shall be pre-ap-
proved  by  the  chair to determine whether the group self-insurer meets
the financial criteria for self-insurance.  All  actuaries  so  selected
shall be fellows or associates of the casualty actuarial society.
  (e)  The chair may also require that any and all agreements, contracts
and other pertinent  documents  relating  to  the  organization  of  the
members in the group self-insurer shall be filed [at the time the appli-
cation  for  group  self-insurance  is  made or anytime thereafter. Such
application shall be on a form prescribed by the chair.  The  chair  may
also  require an agreement on the part of said group self-insurer to pay
any awards commuted under section twenty-seven of this chapter into  the
aggregate trust fund as a condition of its being allowed to operate as a
group self-insurer pursuant to this subdivision] WITH THE CHAIR.
  (f) The chair shall have the authority to [deny the application of the
group  self-insurer  to  pay  such  compensation  or  to] revoke consent
furnished under this section at any time for good cause shown.
  (g) At least twenty days prior to the requested effective date of  the
participating  agreement, a group self-insurer shall notify the chair on
a prescribed form of a new group self-insurer  member  and  file  (1)  a
member  application  and  (2) a copy of the properly executed prescribed
participation agreement wherein the member acknowledges their joint  and
several obligation for their period of membership. The board shall, on a
form promulgated by the chair, provide notice of the member's rights and
responsibilities  as a group self-insurer member, including the member's
assumption of joint and several liability, and  require  the  member  to
return  a  signed  copy  to the chair as a condition of membership. Such
membership shall not become effective until the  signed  copy  has  been
received by the board.
  (h)  Any  member  terminating membership in a group self-insurer after
less than four years in such group self-insurer, and  any  member  in  a
group self-insurer that has defaulted, shall be precluded from obtaining
prospective  coverage  from  any  group  self-insurer for a period of at
least three years from the effective date of termination.
  (a) If for any reason, the status of a group self-insurer  under  this
subdivision  is  terminated,  INCLUDING BY OPERATION OF LAW ON AND AFTER
JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, the securities or cash or the surety
bond on deposit referred to herein shall remain in the  custody  of  the
chair  for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted. In lieu
thereof, and at the discretion of the chair, the group self-insurer, its
heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidating such  group  self-
insurer,  including  the  chair  on the group self-insurer's behalf, may
execute an assumption of workers' compensation liability insurance poli-
cy securing such further and future contingent liability  as  may  arise
from  prior  injuries to workers and be incurred by reason of any change

A. 4007--B                         19

in the condition of such workers warranting the board making  subsequent
awards for payment of additional compensation. Such policy shall be in a
form approved by the superintendent of insurance and issued by the state
fund  or any insurance company licensed to issue this class of insurance
in this state. In the event that such policy is issued by  an  insurance
company  other  than the state fund, then said policy shall be deemed of
the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of subsection (a) of section one
thousand one hundred thirteen of the insurance law and  covered  by  the
workers'  compensation  security fund as created and governed by article
six-A of this chapter. It shall only be issued  for  a  single  complete
premium  payment  in  advance by the group self-insurer and in an amount
deemed acceptable by the chair and the superintendent of  insurance.  In
lieu  of the applicable premium charge ordinarily required to be imposed
by a carrier, said premium shall include a surcharge in an amount to  be
determined by the chair to: (i) satisfy all assessment liability due and
owing to the board and/or the chair under this chapter; and (ii) satisfy
all future assessment liability under this section. Said surcharge shall
be  payable to the board simultaneous to the execution of the assumption
of  workers'  compensation  liability  insurance  policy.  However,  the
payment  of  said  surcharge does not relieve the carrier from any other
liability, including liability owed to the superintendent  of  insurance
pursuant to article six-A of this chapter. When issued such policy shall
be  noncancellable without recourse for any cause during the continuance
of the liability secured and so covered.
  (10)(A) A NON-MUNICIPAL GROUP OF EMPLOYERS MAY MAKE APPLICATION TO THE
CHAIR TO QUALIFY JOINTLY AS A SELF-INSURER, PROVIDED:
  (1) THE MEMBERS OF THE GROUP SECURE THE SERVICES OF AN  ADMINISTRATOR,

CHAIR. ANY FAILURE TO BE CURRENT  WITH  THE  SECURITY  DEPOSIT  REQUIRED
UNDER SUBPARAGRAPH TWO OF THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE SUFFICIENT GROUNDS FOR
REVOCATION OF THE GROUP'S AUTHORIZATION TO SELF-INSURANCE.
  (B)  THE MEMBERS OF ANY SUCH GROUP SHALL ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT AMONG
THEMSELVES AND WITH THE GROUP'S ADMINISTRATOR WHICH SHALL, AT A MINIMUM:
  (1) INDICATE THAT EACH OF THE MEMBERS OF  THE  GROUP  IS  JOINTLY  AND

  S 6. Subparagraph 2 of paragraph b of subdivision 5 of section  50  of
the workers' compensation law is REPEALED.
  S  7.  Paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 of section 141-a of the workers'
compensation law, as added by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, is  amended
to read as follows:
  (a)  Whenever the chair determines that an employer who is required to
secure compensation in accordance with this chapter has failed to secure
such compensation, or where an employer  has  failed  to  pay  penalties
assessed  against  it pursuant to this chapter, OR FAILED TO PAY A JUDG-
MENT UNDER SECTION TWENTY-SIX OF THIS CHAPTER WITHIN NINETY  DAYS  AFTER
NOTICE  TO THE EMPLOYER AND HAS NOT MOVED TO MODIFY OR VACATE SUCH JUDG-
MENT, such failure shall be deemed an immediate serious danger to public
health, safety, or welfare sufficient to justify service by the chair of
a stop-work order on the employer, requiring the cessation of all  busi-
ness operations effective immediately, except where the employer's fail-
ure  concerns  only  domestic  or  child  care workers in his or her own
household. The chair may issue such order, which shall take effect as to
a particular employer worksite when served at that worksite,  or  as  to
all  employer  worksites  in  the state for which the employer is not in
compliance when served on the employer. A stop-work order may be  served
with regard to an employer's worksite by posting a copy of the stop-work
order  in a conspicuous location at the worksite. The order shall remain
in effect until the chair directs that the stop-work order  be  removed,
upon a determination that the employer has come into compliance with the
coverage  requirements of this chapter and has paid any penalty assessed
under this chapter. If the  employer  shall  within  thirty  days  after
notice  of the stop-work order make an application in affidavit form for
a redetermination review of such order the chair shall make  a  decision
in  writing  on  the  issues  raised  in such application. The chair may
direct a conditional release from a stop-work order upon a finding  that
the employer has complied with coverage requirements of this chapter and
has  agreed  to  remit  periodic  payments  of the penalty pursuant to a
payment agreement schedule with the chair. If an agreement or  order  of
conditional  release is issued, failure by the employer to meet any term

A. 4007--B                         21

or condition of such payment agreement shall  result  in  the  immediate
reinstatement  of  the  stop-work order and the entire unpaid balance of
the penalty shall become immediately  due.  The  chair  may  require  an
employer  who  is  found  to  have  failed  to  comply with the coverage
requirements of this chapter to file with the board, as a  condition  of
release  from  a  stop-work  order,  periodic reports for a probationary
period that shall not exceed two years, and that demonstrate the employ-
er's continued compliance with this chapter. The  board  shall  by  rule
specify the reports required and the time for filing under this subdivi-
sion.
  S  8.  Paragraphs  (b)  and (c) of subdivision 2 of section 151 of the
workers' compensation law, paragraph (b) as amended by section 2 of part
QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009 and paragraph  (c)  as  amended  by
chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, are amended to read as follows:
  (b) An itemized statement of the expenses so ascertained shall be open
to  public  inspection  in the office of the board for thirty days after
notice to the state insurance fund, all insurance carriers and all self-
insurers [including group self-insurers] affected  thereby,  before  the
board shall make an assessment for such expenses. The chair shall assess
upon  and  collect a proportion of such expenses as hereinafter provided
from each insurance carrier, the state insurance fund and each  self-in-
surer  [including group self-insurers]. The assessment for such expenses
shall be allocated to (i) self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and
the state insurance fund  based  upon  the  proportion  that  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers] and the state insurance fund in such  year  bore  to  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers], the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group
self-insurers] and (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the  proportion
that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance carriers in
such year bore to the total compensation payments by all  self-insurers,
the  state  insurance  fund and all insurance carriers[, and (iii) group
self-insurers based upon the  proportion  that  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all group self-insurers in such year bore to the total
compensation payments made by all  self-insurers,  the  state  insurance
fund and all insurance carriers]. The portion of the assessment for such
expenses allocated to self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state  insurance  fund  that  shall  be collected from each self-insurer
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund shall be a sum
equal to the proportion of  the  amount  which  the  total  compensation
payments  of each such self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] or the
state insurance fund  in  such  year  bore  to  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state insurance fund. The portion of the assessment  for  such  expenses
allocated  to  insurance carriers that shall be collected from each such
insurance carrier shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the  amount
which  the total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to
the total standard premium reported by all insurance  carriers  for  the
calendar  year  which  ended with the state fiscal year. [The portion of
such sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be  collected  from
each  group  self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the
amount which the pure premium calculation for each such  group  self-in-
surer  bore to the total pure premium calculation for all group self-in-
surers for the calendar year which ended within the state fiscal  year.]
The  amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses of
administering this chapter.  [Pure premium for assessments against indi-

A. 4007--B                         22

vidual and group self-insurers who ceased to self-insure shall be  based
on  payroll  at the time the individual or group self-insurer has ceased
to self-insure, reduced by a factor  reflecting  the  reduction  in  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since
ceasing to self-insure.]
  For purposes of this paragraph,  "standard  premium"  shall  mean  the
premium  as  defined  for  the purposes of this assessment by the super-
intendent of insurance, in consultation with the chair of the board  and
the  workers' compensation rating board. [For purposes of this paragraph
"pure premium calculation" means the New York state annual payroll as of
December thirty-first of the preceding  year  by  class  code  for  each
employer  member  of  a  group self-insurer multiplied by the applicable
rate for each class code as  determined  by  the  workers'  compensation
rating  board in effect on December thirty-first of the preceding year.]
The amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses  of
administering this chapter.
  For the purposes of this paragraph, the term "insurance carrier" shall
include  only  stock  corporations,  mutual  corporations and reciprocal
insurers authorized to transact the business  of  workers'  compensation
insurance  in  this  state and the term "self-insurer" shall include any
employer or group of employers permitted to  pay  compensation  directly
under  the  provisions  of subdivision three, three-a or four of section
fifty of this chapter.  FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, A "SELF-INSUR-
ER" SHALL BE: (I) AN EMPLOYER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE  UNDER  SUBDIVI-
SION THREE OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, OR ACTIVE GROUPS AUTHORIZED
PURSUANT  TO  SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF  SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER, A
GROUP OF EMPLOYERS AUTHORIZED TO  SELF-INSURE  UNDER  PARAGRAPH  TEN  OF
SUBDIVISION  THREE-A  OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER; OR (II) A PUBLIC
EMPLOYER AS SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A  OF  SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  SECTION
FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER AUTHORIZED TO SELF-INSURE UNDER SUBDIVISION THREE,
THREE-A OR FOUR OF SECTION FIFTY OR ARTICLE FIVE OF THIS CHAPTER, WHETH-
ER INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP.
  (c) Assessments for the special disability fund, the fund for reopened
cases  and for the operations of the board shall not constitute elements
of loss but shall for collection purposes be treated as  separate  costs
by  carriers.  [All  group  self-insurers shall collect such assessments
from their employer members in a fair and equitable manner.] All  insur-
ance  carriers,  including  the state insurance fund, shall collect such
assessments from their policyholders through a surcharge based on premi-
um in accordance with rules set forth by the New York  workers'  compen-
sation  rating  board,  as  approved by the superintendent of insurance.
Such surcharge shall be considered  as  part  of  premium  for  purposes
prescribed  by law including, but not limited to, computing premium tax,
reporting to the superintendent of insurance pursuant to  section  nine-
ty-nine of this chapter and section three hundred seven of the insurance
law,  determining  the limitation of expenditures for the administration
of the state insurance fund pursuant to  section  eighty-eight  of  this
chapter  and  the  cancellation  by  an insurance carrier, including the
state insurance fund, of a policy for non-payment of premium.
  S 9. This act shall take effect immediately;  provided  that  sections
one  and  seven  of this act shall take effect January 1, 2011 and shall
apply to any assessment cycle beginning on or after such date;  provided
further,  that  in  the  event  that  the  total  amount  of assessments
collected by the chair of the workers' compensation board by May 1, 2011
pursuant to subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of subdivision 8 of  section
15  of  the  workers' compensation law as amended by section one of this

act do not equal at least one hundred ten percent of  the  debt  service
assessment,  as defined in such provision of law, the chair of the work-
ers' compensation board shall, not later  than  June  1,  2011,  and  in
accordance  with  the  provisions  of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section one of this act, assess and collect a supplemental assessment
in an amount equal to the amount that would have  been  due  from  group
self-insurers  in  2011  had  this  act  not  taken effect, and that the
provisions of subparagraph 4  of  paragraph  (h)  of  subdivision  8  of
section  15 of the workers' compensation law shall apply to such supple-
mental assessment in all respects except for the date and amount of such
special assessment and that such special assessment shall be  deemed  an
assessment  pursuant to subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of subdivision 8
of section 15 of the workers' compensation law for all purposes.

  Section 1. The opening paragraph of subparagraph 4 of paragraph (h) of
subdivision 8 of section 15 of the workers' compensation law, as amended
by section 1 of part QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009, is amended to
read as follows:
  As soon as practicable after May first in the  year  nineteen  hundred
fifty-eight,  and annually thereafter as soon as practicable after Janu-
ary first in each succeeding year, the chair of the board  shall  assess
upon  and  collect from all self-insurers[, except group self-insurers],
the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group self-in-
surers,] (A) a sum equal to one hundred fifty per centum  of  the  total
disbursements made from the special disability fund during the preceding
calendar year (not including any disbursements made on account of antic-
ipated  liabilities  or  waiver  agreements  funded by bond proceeds and
related earnings), less the amount of the net assets in such fund as  of
December  thirty-first  of  said  preceding calendar year, and (B) a sum
sufficient to cover  debt  service,  and  associated  costs  (the  "debt
service assessment") to be paid during the calendar year by the dormito-
ry authority, as calculated in accordance with subparagraph five of this
paragraph.  Such  assessments  shall  be  allocated to (i) self-insurers
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund based upon the
proportion that the total compensation payments made by all  self-insur-
ers  [except  group  self-insurers] and the state insurance fund bore to
the total compensation payments made by all self-insurers [except  group
self-insurers],  the  state  insurance  fund, AND all insurance carriers
[and group self-insurers], AND (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the
proportion  that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance
carriers bore to the total compensation payments  by  all  self-insurers
[except group self-insurers], the state insurance fund and all insurance
carriers  [and  group  self-insurers] during the fiscal year which ended
within said preceding calendar  year[,  and  (iii)  group  self-insurers
based  upon  the proportion that the total compensation payments made by
all group self-insurers bore to the total compensation payments made  by
all  self-insurers,  the state insurance fund and all insurance carriers
during the fiscal year which ended within said preceding calendar year].
Insurance carriers and  self-insurers  shall  be  liable  for  all  such
assessments regardless of the date on which they came into existence, or

S. 2807--C                         13                         A. 4007--C

whether  they  have  made  any  claim for reimbursement from the special
disability fund. The portion of  such  sum  allocated  to  self-insurers
[except  group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund that shall be
collected  from  each self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] and the
state insurance fund shall be a sum  equal  to  the  proportion  of  the
amount  which  the total compensation payments of each such self-insurer
[except a group self-insurer] or the state insurance fund  bore  to  the
total  compensation  payments  made  by  all self-insurers [except group
self-insurers] and the state insurance fund during the fiscal year which
ended within said preceding calendar year. The portion of such sum allo-
cated to insurance carriers that shall be collected from each  insurance
carrier  shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount which the
total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to the  total
standard  premium reported by all insurance carriers during the calendar
year which ended within said preceding fiscal year. [The portion of such
sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be collected  from  each
group self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the amount
which the pure premium calculation for each such group self-insurer bore
to  the  total  pure premium calculation for all group self-insurers for
the calendar year which ended within the preceding state  fiscal  year.]
The  payments  from  the  debt  service assessment, unless otherwise set
forth in the special disability fund  financing  agreement,  are  hereby
pledged  therefor  and  shall  be  deemed  the  first monies received on
account of assessments in each year. For the purposes of this paragraph,
"standard premium" shall mean the premium as defined for the purposes of
this assessment by the superintendent of insurance, in consultation with
the chair of the board and the workers' compensation rating board.  [For
purposes of this paragraph "pure premium calculation" means the New York
state  annual  payroll as of December thirty-first of the preceding year
by class code for each employer member of a  group  self-insurer  multi-
plied  by  the applicable loss cost for each class code as determined by
the workers' compensation rating board in  effect  on  December  thirty-
first  of the preceding year, and for a group or individual self-insurer
who has ceased to self-insure shall be based on payroll at the time  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer  ceased  to self-insure reduced by a
factor reflecting  the  reduction  in  the  group  or  individual  self-
insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since ceasing to self-insure.] An
employer who has ceased to be a self-insurer [or a group that ceases  to
be licensed as a group self-insurer] shall continue to be liable for any
assessments  into said fund on account of any compensation payments made
by him or her on his or her account during such  fiscal  year,  and  the
security fund, created under the provisions of section one hundred seven
of  this chapter, shall, in the event of the insolvency of any insurance
company, be liable for any assessments that would have been made against
such company except for its insolvency. No assessment shall  be  payable
from  the  aggregate trust fund, created under the provisions of section
twenty-seven of this article, but such fund shall continue to be  liable
for  all  compensation that shall be payable under any award or order of
the board, the commuted value of which has been  paid  into  such  fund.
Such assessments when collected shall be deposited with the commissioner
of  taxation  and finance for the benefit of such fund. Unless otherwise
provided, such assessments, shall not constitute an element of loss  for
the  purpose  of establishing rates for compensation insurance but shall
for the purpose of collection be treated as separate costs by  carriers.
All  insurance carriers and the state insurance fund, shall collect such
assessments, from their  policyholders  through  a  surcharge  based  on

S. 2807--C                         14                         A. 4007--C

premiums  in  accordance  with  rules set forth by the superintendent of
insurance in consultation with the New York workers' compensation rating
board and the chair of the board. Such surcharge shall be considered  as
part of premium for purposes prescribed by law including, but not limit-
ed  to, computing premium tax, reporting to the superintendent of insur-
ance pursuant to section ninety-nine of this chapter and  section  three
hundred  seven  of  the  insurance  law,  determining  the limitation of
expenditures for the administration of the state insurance fund pursuant
to section eighty-eight of this  chapter  and  the  cancellation  by  an
insurance  carrier,  including the state insurance fund, of a policy for
non-payment of premium. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply
with respect to policies containing coverage pursuant to subsection  (j)
of  section  three  thousand  four  hundred  twenty of the insurance law
relating to every  policy  providing  comprehensive  personal  liability
insurance  on  a one, two, three or four family owner-occupied dwelling.
The state insurance fund shall[,] notify its insureds that such  assess-
ments,  shall  be,  for  the  purpose of recoupment, treated as separate
costs, [respectively] for the purpose of premiums  billed  on  or  after
October  first,  nineteen hundred ninety-four.  FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS
SECTION, A "SELF-INSURER" SHALL BE:    (I)  AN  EMPLOYER  AUTHORIZED  TO
SELF-INSURE  UNDER  SUBDIVISION  THREE OF SECTION FIFTY OF THIS CHAPTER,

TRUSTS MULTIPLIED BY THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE EMPLOYER'S UNPAID PRO  RATA
SHARE  OF  ANY DEFICIT OWED BY THE CLOSED GROUP SELF-INSURED EMPLOYER OF
WHICH SUCH EMPLOYER WAS A MEMBER, AS DETERMINED BY THE CHAIR. THE AMOUNT
RECEIVED ON SUCH ASSESSMENT SHALL BE  USED  AS  AN  OFFSET  AGAINST  THE
ASSESSMENTS  IMPOSED  ON  OTHER  EMPLOYERS  UNDER  SUBDIVISION  EIGHT OF
SECTION FIFTEEN OF THIS ARTICLE AND SECTION  ONE  HUNDRED  FIFTY-ONE  OF
THIS  CHAPTER  IN  THE  CALENDAR YEAR FOLLOWING THE YEAR IN WHICH IT WAS
RECEIVED.
  S 3. Subdivision 3 of section 50 of the workers' compensation law,  as
amended  by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, the second undesignated para-
graph as amended by section 3 of part R of chapter 56  of  the  laws  of
2010, is amended to read as follows:
  3.  By  furnishing  satisfactory  proof  to the chair of his financial
ability to pay such compensation for himself, OR  TO  PAY  SUCH  COMPEN-
SATION  ON BEHALF OF A GROUP OF EMPLOYERS IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUBDIVISION
TEN OF THIS SECTION, in which case the chair shall require  the  deposit
with the chair of such securities as the chair may deem necessary of the
kind  prescribed  in  subdivisions  one,  two, three, four and five, and
subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of section  two
hundred  thirty-five  of the banking law, or the deposit of cash, or the
filing of irrevocable letters of credit issued by  a  qualified  banking
institution  as  defined by rules promulgated by the chair or the filing
of a bond of a surety company authorized to transact  business  in  this
state,  in  an  amount to be determined by the chair, or the posting and
filing as aforesaid of a combination of such  securities,  cash,  irrev-
ocable  letters  of credit and surety bond in an amount to be determined
by the chair, to secure his liability to pay the  compensation  provided
in this chapter. Any such surety bond must be approved as to form by the
chair.  If  an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS posts and files a combina-
tion of securities, cash, irrevocable letters of credit and surety  bond
as  aforesaid,  and  if  it becomes necessary to use the same to pay the
compensation provided in this chapter, the chair shall  first  use  such
securities  or  cash or irrevocable letters of credit and, when the full
amount thereof has been exhausted, he shall then require the  surety  to
pay  forthwith to the chair all or any part of the penal sum of the bond
for that purpose. The chair may also require an agreement on the part of
the employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to  pay  any  awards  commuted  under
section twenty-seven of this chapter, into the special fund of the state
fund,  as  a condition of his being allowed to remain uninsured pursuant
to this section. The chair shall have the authority to deny the applica-
tion of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS to pay such  compensation  for
himself  or  to  revoke his consent furnished, under this section at any
time, for good cause shown. The employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS  qualify-
ing under this subdivision shall be known as a self-insurer.
  If  for  any  reason  the  status of an employer OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS
under this subdivision is terminated, the securities or the surety bond,
or the securities, cash, or irrevocable letters  of  credit  and  surety
bond,  on  deposit referred to herein shall remain in the custody of the
chair for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted under the
circumstances. In lieu thereof, and at the discretion of the chair,  the

S. 2807--C                         16                         A. 4007--C

employer, his or her heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidat-
ing  such  business,  may execute an assumption of workers' compensation
liability insurance policy securing such further and  future  contingent
liability as may arise from prior injuries to workers and be incurred by
reason  of  any change in condition of such workers warranting the board
making subsequent awards for payment of  additional  compensation.  Such
policy  shall  be  in a form approved by the superintendent of insurance
and issued by the state fund or any insurance company licensed to  issue
this  class of insurance in this state. In the event that such policy is
issued by an insurance company other than  the  state  fund,  then  said
policy  shall  be  deemed  of the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of
subsection (a) of section one  thousand  one  hundred  thirteen  of  the
insurance  law and covered by the workers' compensation security fund as
created and governed by article six-A of this chapter. It shall only  be
issued  for a single complete premium payment in advance by the employer
OR GROUP OF EMPLOYERS and in an amount deemed acceptable  by  the  chair
and  the  superintendent of insurance. In lieu of the applicable premium
charge ordinarily required to be imposed  by  a  carrier,  said  premium
shall include a surcharge in an amount to be determined by the chair to:
(i)  satisfy  all assessment liability due and owing to the board and/or
the chair under this chapter; and (ii)  satisfy  all  future  assessment
liability under this section, AND WHICH SURCHARGE SHALL BE ADJUSTED FROM
TIME  TO TIME TO REFLECT ANY CHANGES TO THE ASSESSMENT OF GROUP SELF-IN-
SURED EMPLOYERS, INCLUDING ANY CHANGES ENACTED BY  THE  CHAPTER  OF  THE
LAWS  OF  TWO  THOUSAND ELEVEN AMENDING SECTIONS FIFTEEN AND ONE HUNDRED
FIFTY-ONE OF THIS CHAPTER.  Said surcharge shall be payable to the board
simultaneous to the execution of the assumption of workers' compensation
liability insurance policy. However, the payment of said surcharge  does
not  relieve  the  carrier from any other liability, including liability
owed to the superintendent of  insurance  pursuant  to  article  [six-a]
SIX-A of this chapter.  When issued such policy shall be non-cancellable
without  recourse  for any cause during the continuance of the liability
secured and so covered.
  [The board will report to the  governor  and  the  legislature  on  or
before  December  first,  two thousand seven, as to the advisability and
feasibility of (1) implementing a statewide self-insured  employer  bond
program, and (2) an improved individual employer bond program.]
  S  4.  Paragraph  9  of  subdivision 3-a of section 50 of the workers'
compensation law is REPEALED and paragraph 2  and  subparagraph  (a)  of
paragraph  7, paragraph 2 as amended by chapter 139 of the laws of 2008,
and subparagraph (a) of paragraph 7 as amended by section 4 of part R of
chapter 56 of the laws of 2010, are amended and three new paragraphs 10,
11 and 12 are added to read as follows:
  (2) (a) Any group consisting exclusively of such employers may adopt a
plan for self-insurance, as a group, for  the  payment  of  compensation
under  this  chapter  to  their employees, except that no new groups may
adopt such a plan [prior to April first,  two  thousand  nine],  AND  NO
GROUP NOT COMPOSED SOLELY OF PUBLIC ENTITIES SET FORTH IN PARAGRAPH A OF
SUBDIVISION  FOUR  OF  THIS  SECTION  MAY INSURE ANY LIABILITIES FOR ANY
EMPLOYERS ON AND AFTER JANUARY FIRST, TWO  THOUSAND  TWELVE,  EXCEPT  AS
PROVIDED  FOR  IN PARAGRAPH TEN OF THIS SUBDIVISION. Under such plan the
group shall assume the liability of all the employers within  the  group
and  pay  all compensation for which the said employers are liable under
this chapter, except that in the case of municipal corporations as here-
in defined no proof of financial ability or  deposit  of  securities  or
cash need be made in compliance with this subdivision.  The group quali-

S. 2807--C                         17                         A. 4007--C

fying  under this subdivision shall be known as a group self-insurer and
the employers participating therein and covered thereby shall  be  known
as members.
  (b)  Where  such  plan is adopted the group self-insurer shall furnish
satisfactory proof to the chair of its financial  ability  to  pay  such
compensation  for  the members in the industry covered by it, its reven-
ues, their source and assurance of continuance. The chair shall  require
the deposit with the chair of such securities as may be deemed necessary
of  the  kind prescribed in subdivisions one, two, three, four and five,
and subparagraph (a) of paragraph three of subdivision seven of  section
two hundred thirty-five of the banking law or the deposit of cash or the
filing  of  irrevocable  letters of credit issued by a qualified banking
institution as defined by rules promulgated by the chair or  the  filing
of  a  bond  of a surety company authorized to transact business in this
state, in an amount to be determined to secure its liability to pay  the
compensation  of each employer as above provided.  Such surety bond must
be approved as to form by the chair. The chair shall require each  group
self-insurer  to  provide  regular  reports no less than annually, which
shall include but not be limited to audited financial statements,  actu-
arial opinions and payroll information containing proof that it is fully
funded.  Such  reports  shall  also include a contribution year analysis
detailing contributions  and  expenses  associated  with  each  specific
contribution  year.  For  purposes of this paragraph, proof that a group
self-insurer is fully funded shall at a minimum include proof  of  unre-
stricted cash and investments permitted by regulation of the chair of at
least  one hundred percent of the total liabilities, including the esti-
mate presented in the actuarial opinion submitted by the group  self-in-
surer  in accordance with this chapter. The chair by regulation, may set
further financial standards for group self-insurers. Any group  self-in-
surer  that fails to show that it is fully funded shall be deemed under-
funded, and must submit a plan for achieving fully funded  status  which
may  include  a deficit assessment on members of such group self-insurer
which shall be subject to approval or modification by  the  chair.  [The
chair  may impose such limitations on admission of new members or offer-
ing of discounts on underfunded group self-insurers to insure that  such
group self-insurers shall become fully funded. Should the group self-in-
surer  fail  to  meet the terms of its plan, the chair may condition its
continued authorization to act as a group self-insurer on  the  appoint-
ment  of  an  outside  monitor selected by the chair, at the group self-
insurer's expense. Effective January first, two thousand  fourteen,  any
group  self-insurer  that fails to show it is fully funded in accordance
with this paragraph and the regulations issued  pursuant  thereto  shall
have  one  year  to cure the deficiency. If such deficiency is not cured
within one year, the group self-insurer shall be  given  six  months  to
terminate its coverage.]
  (c)  The  chair shall evaluate, no less than once every three years, a
group  self-insurer's  compliance  with  the  financial  and  regulatory
requirements  for  self-insurance.  The  chair  may engage any qualified
person or organization to assist with  such  evaluation  and  any  costs
incurred  by  the  chair  shall be borne by the group self-insurer under
examination. Failure to submit to such independent review or to pay such
costs, upon demand of the chair, shall be sufficient grounds  to  termi-
nate coverage of the group self-insurer.
  (d)  The chair may require reports to be prepared by an auditor, actu-
ary or other consultant, selected  by  the  board  or,  at  the  chair's
discretion, by the group self-insurer from a list which shall be pre-ap-

S. 2807--C                         18                         A. 4007--C

proved  by  the  chair to determine whether the group self-insurer meets
the financial criteria for self-insurance.  All  actuaries  so  selected
shall be fellows or associates of the casualty actuarial society.
  (e)  The chair may also require that any and all agreements, contracts
and other pertinent  documents  relating  to  the  organization  of  the
members in the group self-insurer shall be filed [at the time the appli-
cation  for  group  self-insurance  is  made or anytime thereafter. Such
application shall be on a form prescribed by the chair.  The  chair  may
also  require an agreement on the part of said group self-insurer to pay
any awards commuted under section twenty-seven of this chapter into  the
aggregate trust fund as a condition of its being allowed to operate as a
group self-insurer pursuant to this subdivision] WITH THE CHAIR.
  (f) The chair shall have the authority to [deny the application of the
group  self-insurer  to  pay  such  compensation  or  to] revoke consent
furnished under this section at any time for good cause shown.
  (g) [At least twenty days prior] PRIOR to the requested effective date
of the participating agreement, a group self-insurer  shall  notify  the
chair  on  a prescribed form of a new group self-insurer member and file
(1) a member application  and  (2)  a  copy  of  the  properly  executed
prescribed participation agreement wherein the member acknowledges their
joint  and  several obligation for their period of membership. The board
shall, on a form  promulgated  by  the  chair,  provide  notice  of  the
member's  rights  and  responsibilities  as a group self-insurer member,
including the member's assumption of joint and  several  liability,  and
require  the  member to return a signed copy to the chair as a condition
of membership. [Such membership shall not  become  effective  until  the
signed copy has been received by the board.]
  (h)  Any  member  terminating membership in a group self-insurer after
less than four years in such group self-insurer, and  any  member  in  a
group self-insurer that has defaulted, shall be precluded from obtaining
prospective  coverage  from  any  group  self-insurer for a period of at
least three years from the effective date of termination.
  (a) If for any reason, the status of a group self-insurer  under  this
subdivision  is  terminated,  INCLUDING BY OPERATION OF LAW ON AND AFTER
JANUARY FIRST, TWO THOUSAND TWELVE, the securities or cash or the surety
bond on deposit referred to herein shall remain in the  custody  of  the
chair  for such time as the chair may deem proper and warranted. In lieu
thereof, and at the discretion of the chair, the group self-insurer, its
heirs or assigns or others carrying on or liquidating such  group  self-
insurer,  including  the  chair  on the group self-insurer's behalf, may
execute an assumption of workers' compensation liability insurance poli-
cy securing such further and future contingent liability  as  may  arise
from  prior  injuries to workers and be incurred by reason of any change
in the condition of such workers warranting the board making  subsequent
awards for payment of additional compensation. Such policy shall be in a
form approved by the superintendent of insurance and issued by the state
fund  or any insurance company licensed to issue this class of insurance
in this state.  In the event that such policy is issued by an  insurance
company  other  than the state fund, then said policy shall be deemed of
the kind specified in paragraph fifteen of subsection (a) of section one
thousand one hundred thirteen of the insurance law and  covered  by  the
workers'  compensation  security fund as created and governed by article
six-A of this chapter.  It shall only be issued for  a  single  complete
premium  payment  in  advance by the group self-insurer and in an amount
deemed acceptable by the chair and the superintendent of  insurance.  In
lieu  of the applicable premium charge ordinarily required to be imposed

S. 2807--C                         19                         A. 4007--C

by a carrier, said premium shall include a surcharge in an amount to  be
determined by the chair to: (i) satisfy all assessment liability due and
owing to the board and/or the chair under this chapter; and (ii) satisfy
all  future assessment liability under this section, AND WHICH SURCHARGE
SHALL BE ADJUSTED FROM TIME TO  TIME  TO  REFLECT  ANY  CHANGES  TO  THE
ASSESSMENT  OF  GROUP  SELF-INSURED  EMPLOYERS,  INCLUDING  ANY  CHANGES
ENACTED BY THE CHAPTER OF THE  LAWS  OF  TWO  THOUSAND  ELEVEN  AMENDING
SECTIONS  FIFTEEN  AND  ONE  HUNDRED  FIFTY-ONE  OF THIS CHAPTER.   Said
surcharge shall be payable to the board simultaneous to the execution of
the assumption of  workers'  compensation  liability  insurance  policy.
However, the payment of said surcharge does not relieve the carrier from
any  other  liability, including liability owed to the superintendent of
insurance pursuant to article six-A of this chapter.   When issued  such
policy shall be noncancellable without recourse for any cause during the
continuance of the liability secured and so covered.
  (10)  (A)  A  NON-MUNICIPAL GROUP OF EMPLOYERS MAY MAKE APPLICATION TO
THE CHAIR TO QUALIFY JOINTLY AS A SELF-INSURER, PROVIDED:
  (1) THE MEMBERS OF THE GROUP SECURE THE SERVICES OF AN  ADMINISTRATOR,

  S 5. Subparagraph 2 of paragraph b of subdivision 5 of section  50  of
the workers' compensation law is REPEALED.
  S  6.  Paragraph (a) of subdivision 4 of section 141-a of the workers'
compensation law, as added by chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, is  amended
to read as follows:
  (a)  Whenever the chair determines that an employer who is required to
secure compensation in accordance with this chapter has failed to secure
such compensation, or where an employer  has  failed  to  pay  penalties
assessed  against  it pursuant to this chapter, OR FAILED TO PAY A JUDG-
MENT UNDER SECTION TWENTY-SIX OF THIS CHAPTER WITHIN NINETY  DAYS  AFTER
NOTICE  TO THE EMPLOYER AND HAS NOT MOVED TO MODIFY OR VACATE SUCH JUDG-
MENT, such failure shall be deemed an immediate serious danger to public
health, safety, or welfare sufficient to justify service by the chair of
a stop-work order on the employer, requiring the cessation of all  busi-
ness operations effective immediately, except where the employer's fail-
ure  concerns  only  domestic  or  child  care workers in his or her own
household. The chair may issue such order, which shall take effect as to
a particular employer worksite when served at that worksite,  or  as  to
all  employer  worksites  in  the state for which the employer is not in
compliance when served on the employer. A stop-work order may be  served
with regard to an employer's worksite by posting a copy of the stop-work
order  in a conspicuous location at the worksite. The order shall remain
in effect until the chair directs that the stop-work order  be  removed,
upon a determination that the employer has come into compliance with the
coverage  requirements of this chapter and has paid any penalty assessed

S. 2807--C                         21                         A. 4007--C

under this chapter. If the  employer  shall  within  thirty  days  after
notice  of the stop-work order make an application in affidavit form for
a redetermination review of such order the chair shall make  a  decision
in  writing  on  the  issues  raised  in such application. The chair may
direct a conditional release from a stop-work order upon a finding  that
the employer has complied with coverage requirements of this chapter and
has  agreed  to  remit  periodic  payments  of the penalty pursuant to a
payment agreement schedule with the chair. If an agreement or  order  of
conditional  release is issued, failure by the employer to meet any term
or condition of such payment agreement shall  result  in  the  immediate
reinstatement  of  the  stop-work order and the entire unpaid balance of
the penalty shall become immediately  due.  The  chair  may  require  an
employer  who  is  found  to  have  failed  to  comply with the coverage
requirements of this chapter to file with the board, as a  condition  of
release  from  a  stop-work  order,  periodic reports for a probationary
period that shall not exceed two years, and that demonstrate the employ-
er's continued compliance with this chapter. The  board  shall  by  rule
specify the reports required and the time for filing under this subdivi-
sion.
  S  7.  Paragraphs  (b)  and (c) of subdivision 2 of section 151 of the
workers' compensation law, paragraph (b) as amended by section 2 of part
QQ of chapter 56 of the laws of 2009 and paragraph  (c)  as  amended  by
chapter 6 of the laws of 2007, are amended to read as follows:
  (b) An itemized statement of the expenses so ascertained shall be open
to  public  inspection  in the office of the board for thirty days after
notice to the state insurance fund, all insurance carriers and all self-
insurers [including group self-insurers] affected  thereby,  before  the
board shall make an assessment for such expenses. The chair shall assess
upon  and  collect a proportion of such expenses as hereinafter provided
from each insurance carrier, the state insurance fund and each  self-in-
surer  [including group self-insurers]. The assessment for such expenses
shall be allocated to (i) self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and
the state insurance fund  based  upon  the  proportion  that  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers] and the state insurance fund in such  year  bore  to  the  total
compensation  payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-in-
surers], the state insurance fund, AND all insurance carriers [and group
self-insurers] and (ii) insurance carriers  based  upon  the  proportion
that  the  total compensation payments made by all insurance carriers in
such year bore to the total compensation payments by all  self-insurers,
the  state  insurance  fund and all insurance carriers[, and (iii) group
self-insurers based upon the  proportion  that  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all group self-insurers in such year bore to the total
compensation payments made by all  self-insurers,  the  state  insurance
fund and all insurance carriers]. The portion of the assessment for such
expenses allocated to self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state  insurance  fund  that  shall  be collected from each self-insurer
[except group self-insurers] and the state insurance fund shall be a sum
equal to the proportion of  the  amount  which  the  total  compensation
payments  of each such self-insurer [except a group self-insurer] or the
state insurance fund  in  such  year  bore  to  the  total  compensation
payments  made by all self-insurers [except group self-insurers] and the
state insurance fund. The portion of the assessment  for  such  expenses
allocated  to  insurance carriers that shall be collected from each such
insurance carrier shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the  amount
which  the total standard premium by each such insurance carrier bore to

S. 2807--C                         22                         A. 4007--C

the total standard premium reported by all insurance  carriers  for  the
calendar  year  which  ended with the state fiscal year. [The portion of
such sum allocated to group self-insurers that shall be  collected  from
each  group  self-insurer shall be a sum equal to that proportion of the
amount which the pure premium calculation for each such  group  self-in-
surer  bore to the total pure premium calculation for all group self-in-
surers for the calendar year which ended within the state fiscal  year.]
The  amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses of
administering this chapter.  [Pure premium for assessments against indi-
vidual and group self-insurers who ceased to self-insure shall be  based
on  payroll  at the time the individual or group self-insurer has ceased
to self-insure, reduced by a factor  reflecting  the  reduction  in  the
group  or  individual  self-insurer's  self-insurance  liabilities since
ceasing to self-insure.]
  For purposes of this paragraph,  "standard  premium"  shall  mean  the
premium  as  defined  for  the purposes of this assessment by the super-
intendent of insurance, in consultation with the chair of the board  and
the  workers' compensation rating board. [For purposes of this paragraph
"pure premium calculation" means the New York state annual payroll as of
December thirty-first of the preceding  year  by  class  code  for  each
employer  member  of  a  group self-insurer multiplied by the applicable
rate for each class code as  determined  by  the  workers'  compensation
rating  board in effect on December thirty-first of the preceding year.]
The amounts so secured shall be used for the payment of the expenses  of
administering this chapter.
  For the purposes of this paragraph, the term "insurance carrier" shall
include  only  stock  corporations,  mutual  corporations and reciprocal
insurers authorized to transact the business  of  workers'  compensation

RESULTED IN QUANTIFIABLE RECURRING SAVINGS, EFFICIENCIES, AND  PERMANENT
IMPROVEMENTS TO MUNICIPAL SERVICES. THE SECRETARY OF STATE MAY FOCUS THE

OR SERVICES. THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT AWARDED PER APPLICATION SHALL NOT EXCEED
THE LESSER OF FIVE MILLION DOLLARS OR TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS  PER  RESIDENT
OF  THE  APPLYING MUNICIPALITIES AS OF THE MOST RECENT FEDERAL DECENNIAL
CENSUS, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT  IF  THE  BOUNDARIES  OF  MUNICIPALITIES

AREAS SHALL ONLY BE COUNTED ONCE, AND PROVIDED, FURTHER, THAT IF A COUN-
TY JOINTLY APPLIES WITH SOME BUT NOT ALL  OF  THE  OTHER  MUNICIPALITIES
THEREIN, ONLY THE RESIDENTS IN SUCH OTHER MUNICIPALITIES SHALL BE COUNT-
