AN ACT in relation to authorizing  Casey  Wall  to  participate  in  the
  optional 20 year retirement plan for police officers


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the village of Sands Point, county of Nassau, 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 secu-
rity law, and the additional benefits established  pursuant  to  section
384-e of such law, to police officers employed by such village, is here-
by  authorized  to  make  participation  in such plan available to Casey
Wall, a police officer employed by  the  village  of  Sands  Point,  who
joined  the  retirement  system pursuant to article 14 of the retirement
and social security law and, for  reasons  not  ascribable  to  his  own
negligence,  failed  to  make  a  timely election to have his retirement
benefits calculated pursuant to article 22 of such law. The  village  of
Sands  Point  may  so  elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or
before December 31, 2012, a resolution of  its  village  board  together
with  certification  that  such  police officer did not bar himself from
making a timely election of article 22 as a result  of  his  own  negli-
gence.  Thereafter,  such  police officer may elect to be covered by the
provisions of article 22 of the retirement and social security law,  and
shall be entitled to the full rights and benefits associated with cover-
age  under  such  article,  by  filing a request to that effect with the
state comptroller on or before June 30, 2013.
  S  2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing   the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the village of Sands Point.
