AN ACT in relation to authorizing James Mallan to apply for an  increase
  in his disability pension


  Section 1. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, James
Mallan who commenced employment with the state department of correction-
al services on May 30, 1988, and who through no negligence  of  his  own
was  disabled  while  completing his training at the academy on June 29,
1988 and who was granted disability retirement in  April  1990  at  one-
third  of  his final salary, and who was reinstated by the state depart-
ment of corrections and community supervision, shall have his retirement
benefits calculated based on his final average salary at the time of his
application for disability retirement benefits on February 28, 2008,  if
he  shall  file an application therefor with the state comptroller on or
before December 31, 2013.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.-- This bill  will  deem  James  T.  Mallan,  currently  a
Section  507-a  disability retiree receiving an annual benefit of 1/3 of
final average salary earned as of  April,  1990,  to  have  his  pension
recalculated  based  on his final average salary with the New York State
Department of Correctional Services earned as of February, 2008.
  If this bill is enacted, we anticipate  that  there  will  be  a  past
service  cost of approximately $141,000 which will be borne by the State
of New York and all the participating employers in the  New  York  State
and Local Employees' Retirement System.
