  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  city of Newburgh, in the county of Orange, a participating employer

rity  law, to police officers and firefighters employed by such city, is
hereby authorized to make participation in such plan available to Daniel

  The  city  of  Newburgh  may  so  elect by filing with the state comp-
troller, on or before December 31, 2011, a resolution of  its  governing
