Introduced  by  Sen.  LIBOUS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Civil Service and Pensions

AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  establishing  a presumption that police officers and firefighters, who
  contract methicillin resistant Staphylococcus  aureus  or  staph/MRSA,
  contracted such disease in the performance of his or her duties

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The retirement and social security law is amended by adding
a new section 363-ddd to read as follows:
  S 363-DDD. IMPAIRMENTS OF HEALTH; PRESUMPTION; STAPH/MRSA.    NOTWITH-
STANDING  ANY  PROVISION  OF  THIS CHAPTER OR OF ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL OR
LOCAL LAW TO THE CONTRARY, ANY POLICE  OFFICER  OR  FIREFIGHTER  WHO  IS
COVERED  BY  THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION THREE HUNDRED SIXTY-THREE OF THIS
TITLE AND WHO  CONTRACTS  METHICILLIN  RESISTANT  STAPHYLOCOCCUS  AUREUS
(MRSA),  OR  STAPH/MRSA WILL BE PRESUMED TO HAVE CONTRACTED SUCH DISEASE
IN THE PERFORMANCE OR DISCHARGE OF HIS OR HER DUTIES AS THE NATURAL  AND
PROXIMATE  RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT AND TO BE DISABLED FROM THE PERFORMANCE
OF HIS OR  HER  DUTIES  UNLESS  THE  CONTRARY  BE  PROVEN  BY  COMPETENT
EVIDENCE.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill will affect certain members of the New York State and Local
Police and Fire Retirement System by presuming that contracting MRSA  or
Staph/MRSA  will  qualify  them for an accidental disability retirement,
unless the contrary be proven by competent evidence.
  If this bill is enacted, it would  lead  to  more  disabilities  being
classified  as  "accidental".  For the disabilities so classified due to
this bill, the cost would depend  on  whether  such  person  would  have
otherwise  been  eligible  for  an ordinary disability, a performance of
duty disability or a service retirement. For  those  who  contract  such

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
