AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  deductions for retiree organization dues

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

  Section 1. Section 110-c of the retirement and social security law, as
amended by chapter 165 of the laws  of  1993,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  S  110-c.  Deductions  from  benefits of certain retired members.   1.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a retired member shall  have
the  right,  at  any time after the retiree's retirement, to execute and
file a deduction authorization card with the comptroller authorizing the
deduction from the retired member's retirement allowance  of  membership
dues  and such retired member's share of the cost for employee organiza-
tion-sponsored benefit plans and the payment thereof to a retiree organ-
ization of which the retired member is then a member and which  is  then
affiliated  with either an employee organization certified or recognized
as the collective bargaining representative  of  all  employees  in  the
negotiating  unit of which the retired member was a part prior to his or
her retirement or with an employee organization with which such employee
organization is then affiliated. The comptroller shall thereafter deduct
from the retirement allowance of  such  retired  member  the  amount  of
membership  dues  and  such  amounts required to be paid by such retired
member  for  such  authorized  employee  organization-sponsored  benefit
plans,  and shall transmit the sum so deducted to said retiree organiza-
tion. Such authorization shall continue in effect until revoked in writ-
ing by such retired member.  For  purposes  of  this  section  the  term
"employee  organization-sponsored  benefit  plans" shall include any and
all insurance plans and/or other benefit plans sponsored by such retiree
organization  whether  provided  by  (a)  a  not-for-profit  corporation

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