AN ACT to authorize the city of Niagara Falls, in the county of Niagara,

  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 Niagara Falls, in the county  of  Niagara,  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 firefighters employed by such city, is here-
by authorized to make participation in such plan available to Richard E.
Mylchreest,  Jr.,  a  firefighter employed by the city of Niagara Falls,
who, for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence, enrolled  in  the
retirement  plan established pursuant to section 375-i of the retirement
and social security law. The city of  Niagara  Falls  may  so  elect  by
filing  with  the  state  comptroller, on or before December 31, 2012, a
resolution of its city council 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 section 384-d of the retirement
and social security law, and shall be entitled to the  full  rights  and
benefits  associated  with  coverage  under  such  section,  by filing a
request to that effect with the state comptroller on or before  February
28, 2013.
  S   2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the city of Niagara Falls.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--This bill will allow the City of Niagara Falls to reopen
the provisions of  Section  384-d,  therefore  granting  coverage  under
Section  384-e of the Retirement and Social Security Law for firefighter
Richard E.  Mylchreest, Jr.

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