BILL NUMBER:S6584 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public officers law, in relation to activities by former state officers PURPOSE: Extends the exemption of subparagraph (i) of paragraph (a) to any state officer or employee whose employment was terminated between January 1, 2009 to April 1, 2014. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 - amends paragraph (b) of section 73 of the public officers law (as amended by chapter 574 of the laws of 2011). JUSTIFICATION: Ordinarily, employees who leave State service may not, for two years, appear or practice before their former agency or receive compensation for rendering services on a matter before their former agency. However, there are current provisions to allow for exemption from this law in cases of termination due to the economy, consolidation, or aboli- tion of functions. This particular act amends the public officers law extending the exemption period by two years, from April 1, 2012 to April 1, 2014.
