AN ACT to authorize the village of Hudson Falls, in the county of  Wash-
  ington  to  offer  an  optional  twenty year retirement plan to police
  officer Brandon Kommer


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  village of Hudson Falls, in the county of Washington, a participat-
ing employer in the New York state and local police and fire  retirement
system,  which  previously  elected  to  offer  the optional twenty year
retirement plan, established pursuant to section 384-d of the retirement
and social security law, to police officers employed by such village, is
hereby authorized to make participation in such plan available to  Bran-
don  Kommer,  a  police officer employed by the village of Hudson Falls,
who, for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence, failed to make  a
timely  application  to participate in such optional twenty year retire-
ment plan.  The village of Hudson Falls may so elect by filing with  the
state  comptroller,  on or before December 31, 2014, a resolution of its
board of trustees together with certification that such  police  officer
did  not  bar  himself  from  participation in such retirement plan as a
result of his own negligence.  Thereafter, such police officer may elect
to be covered by the provisions of section 384-d of the  retirement  and
social  security law, and shall be entitled to the full rights and bene-
fits associated with coverage under such section, by filing a request to
that effect with the state comptroller on or before June 30, 2015.
  S 2. All past costs associated with  implementing  the  provisions  of
this act shall be borne by the village of Hudson Falls.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:

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