AN ACT to allow Joel Lochner to join the optional twenty year retirement
  plan, city of Amsterdam, county of Montgomery

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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  city  of  Amsterdam,  in  the county of Montgomery, a participating
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  city,  is
hereby  authorized  to make participation in such plan available to Joel
Lochner, a police officer employed by the city of  Amsterdam,  who,  for
reasons  not  ascribable  to  his own negligence failed to make a timely
application to participate in such optional twenty year retirement plan.
Thereafter, Joel Lochner, may elect to be covered by the  provisions  of
section  384-d  of  the  retirement  and social security law as a Tier 5
member, and shall be entitled to the full rights and benefits associated
with coverage under such section, by filing a  request  to  that  effect
with the state comptroller on or before December 31, 2013.
  S   2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the city of Amsterdam  and  may
be amortized over a period of five years.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL  NOTE.--This  bill will allow the city of Amsterdam to elect to
reopen the provisions of Section 384-d  of  the  Retirement  and  Social
Security Law for police officer Joel Lochner.
  If  this  bill  were  enacted,  we  anticipate  that  there will be an
increase of approximately $3,600 in the annual contributions of the city
of Amsterdam for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.

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