TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Jaime Laczko to elect to
participate in the optional twenty-five year retirement plan for
forest rangers in the service of the department of environmental
PURPOSE: Authorizes Jamie Laczko to elect to participate in the
optional 25 year retirement plan for forest rangers.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1- Authorizes Jamie Laczko to file an application with the
State Comptroller to participate in the retirement plan established by
section 383-c of the retirement and social security law. The bill
further provides that the application must be files within one year of
the effective date.
Section 2- States that all past cost associated with implementing the
provisions in the act shall be borne by the state of New York.
Section 3- Contains the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: Forest Ranger Jamie Laczko was placed in the Police
and Fire retirement plan 375H rather than the 383C plan option. At the
time, forest rangers were made Police officers in 2006 they were given
the option to transfer into the Police and Fire Retirement System.
Ranger Laczko's intent was to be placed in the 383C plan which would
allow him to retire after 25 years of service, however, he was placed
in the 375H plan through an error in filling out the paper work.
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: $4,700 increase in the annual contributions of
the State of New York for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.
EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
