BILL NUMBER:S1893

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the retirement and social security law,
in relation to government service

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill is intended to protect the
pension benefits of Industrial Development Agency (IDA) employees who
provided services to Local Development Corporations (LDCs).

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Adds a new paragraph to subdivision 11 of section 2 of the
retirement and social security law. This section adds language to
protect pension benefits of IDA employees who provided services to local
development corporations.

Section 2: Establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Last year the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC)
issued an opinion that stated employees of municipal IDAs that had
rendered services to an LDC were not eligible for New York State retire-
ment credit. The OSC applied this opinion retroactively in the case of
the Jefferson County IDA, and 12 employees were stripped of their
retirement credit. This bill will provide protection to other employees
of IDAs who might have provided services to LDCs, and whose retirement
benefits might be at risk.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S. 7750 - 2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
