AN ACT to authorize Paul Liberatore to apply for retroactive  membership
  in the New York state and local police and fire retirement system

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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of law, the fire
district of Hartsdale in the town of Greenburgh, county of  Westchester,
a participating employer in the New York state and local police and fire
retirement  system,  which has elected to offer the optional twenty year
retirement plan, established pursuant to section 384-d of the retirement
and social security law, and the additional pension benefits to  members
of  such  plan,  established pursuant to section 384-e of the retirement
and social security law, to firefighters employed by such town, is here-
by authorized to make retroactive membership in such plan  available  to
Paul  Liberatore,  a  firefighter  with  the  Hartsdale  fire  district,
employed by the Hartsdale fire district, who, for reasons not ascribable
to his own negligence failed to make a timely application to participate
in such optional twenty year retirement plan and the additional  pension
benefits  therefor.  The  Hartsdale fire district may so elect by filing
with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2012, a resolution
of its governing body together with certification that such  firefighter
did  not  bar  himself  from  participation in such retirement plan as a
result of his own negligence. Thereafter, such firefighter may elect  to
be  covered by the provisions of sections 384-d and 384-e of the retire-
ment and social security law, and shall be entitled to the  full  rights
and  benefits  associated with coverage under such sections, by filing a
request to that effect with the state comptroller on or before June  30,
2013.
  S  2. Any past service costs incurred by operation of the provision of
this act shall be borne by the Hartsdale fire district.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
