AN ACT to authorize the town of North Greenbush  to  offer  an  optional
  twenty  year  retirement  plan  to certain police officers employed by
  such town


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  town  of  North Greenbush, a participating employer in the New York
state and local police and  fire  retirement  system,  which  previously
elected  to  offer the optional twenty year retirement plan, established
pursuant to section 384-d of the retirement and social security law,  to
police  officers  employed  by  such  town, is hereby authorized to make
participation in such plan available to  Kate  Anslow,  Joseph  Farrell,
Lisa  Giddings-Fumarola,  Michael  Merola, Randy Pastore, Douglas Pinzer
and Clifford Ruschmeyer, police officers employed by the town  of  North
Greenbush,  who,  for  reasons  not  ascribable to their own negligence,
failed to make a timely application  to  participate  in  such  optional
twenty year retirement plan. The town of North Greenbush may so elect by
filing  with  the  state  comptroller, on or before December 31, 2011, a
resolution of its local legislative  body  together  with  certification
that  such  police officers did not bar themselves from participation in
such retirement plan as a result of their  own  negligence.  Thereafter,
such  police  officers  may  elect  to  be  covered by the provisions of
section 384-d of the retirement and social security law,  and  shall  be
entitled  to the full rights and benefits associated with coverage under
