AN ACT to authorize the St. Paul Boulevard fire  district  to  offer  an
  optional  twenty year retirement plan to firefighters Robert J. Ander-
  son, Edmond Kaspar, Kevin Magin, Jeremy Schaeffer,  John  Semmler  and
  Timothy Warth

  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 St. Paul boulevard fire district, a participating  employer  in  the
New  York  state  police  and  fire  retirement system, which previously
elected to offer additional pension benefits for members of the optional
twenty year retirement plan, established pursuant to  subdivision  f  of
section  384  of the retirement and social security law, to firefighters
employed by such district, is hereby authorized to make participation in
such plan available to Robert J. Anderson, Edmond Kaspar,  Kevin  Magin,
Jeremy  Schaeffer, John Semmler and Timothy Warth, firefighters employed
by the St. Paul boulevard fire district in the city of  Rochester,  who,
for  reasons  not  ascribable  to their own negligence, failed to make a
timely application to participate in such optional twenty  year  retire-
ment  plan.  The St. Paul boulevard fire district may so elect by filing
with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2014, a resolution
of its local legislative body  together  with  certification  that  such
firefighters  did  not bar themselves from participation in such retire-
ment plan as a result of their own negligence.  Thereafter,  such  fire-
fighters  may  elect to be covered by the provisions of subdivision f of
section 384 of the retirement and social  security  law,  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  comp-
troller on or before June 30, 2015.
  S  2. All employer past service costs associated with implementing the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the  St.  Paul  boulevard  fire
district and the past service costs associated with this act may be paid
in ten equal annual installments.

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