AN ACT granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and
  local employees' retirement system to Brian Stebbins

  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, Brian Stebbins,
a  member  of the New York state and local employees' retirement system,
who was employed on August 1, 2003, by the village of Green Island,  and
who  filed  a  membership  application in such system on August 1, 2003,
which should have given him Tier IV status but for reasons not  ascriba-
ble to his own negligence and due to an administrative error, the appli-
cation was not processed in the usual manner and therefore not processed
until  March  15, 2012, may be deemed to have become a member of the New
York state and local employees' retirement system on August 1, 2003.
  S 2. Any past service costs incurred in implementing the provisions of
this act shall be borne by the village of Green Island.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill will grant Tier 4 status in the New  York  State  and  Local
Employees'  Retirement  System  to  Brian  M. Stebbins, a current Tier 5
member employed by the State of  New  York,  by  changing  his  date  of
membership  to  August  1,  2003,  the first date he was employed by the
Village of Green Island.
  If this legislation is enacted during the 2012 legislative session, we
anticipate that there will be an increase of approximately $1,600 in the
annual contributions of the State of New York for the fiscal year ending
March 31, 2013.
  In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be
an immediate past service cost of approximately $130 which will be borne
by the Village of Green Island as a one time payment. This  estimate  is
based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1, 2013.
