AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  disability retirement benefits for sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, undersh-
  eriffs, and correction officers in Westchester county

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

  Section 1. Section 607-c of the retirement and social security law  is
amended by adding a new subdivision f to read as follows:
  F. ANY SHERIFF, DEPUTY SHERIFF, UNDERSHERIFF, OR CORRECTION OFFICER AS
DEFINED  IN  SUBDIVISION A OF SECTION SIXTY-THREE-B OF THIS CHAPTER, AND
WHO ARE EMPLOYED  IN  WESTCHESTER  COUNTY,  WHO  BECOMES  PHYSICALLY  OR
MENTALLY  INCAPACITATED FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF DUTIES AS THE NATURAL AND
PROXIMATE RESULT OF AN INJURY, SUSTAINED IN THE PERFORMANCE OR DISCHARGE
OF HIS OR HER DUTIES BY, OR AS THE NATURAL AND PROXIMATE  RESULT  OF  AN
INTENTIONAL OR RECKLESS ACT OF ANY CIVILIAN VISITING, OR OTHERWISE PRES-
ENT  AT,  AN INSTITUTION UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COUNTY, SHALL BE
PAID A PERFORMANCE OF DUTY DISABILITY RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE EQUAL TO THAT
WHICH IS PROVIDED IN SECTION SIXTY-THREE OF THIS CHAPTER, SUBJECT TO THE
PROVISIONS OF SECTION SIXTY-FOUR OF THIS CHAPTER.
  S 2. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,  none
of  the  provisions  of  this  act shall be subject to section 25 of the
retirement and social security law.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative law, Section 50:
  This bill will allow any  sheriff,  undersheriff,  deputy  sheriff  or
correction  officer employed by Westchester County to become eligible to
receive a performance of duty benefit due to the intentional or reckless
act of a civilian visiting an institution under the jurisdiction of such
county. The benefit will be 75% of final average  salary  less  worker's
compensation. Currently, to be eligible for such improved benefit, it is
required  that  such injuries were sustained as the result of an "act of
an inmate".

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