AN ACT to allow Thomas Steier to be reclassified as a Tier II member  of
  the New York City Employees' Retirement System

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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of  law,  Thomas
Steier,  a  member  of  the  New  York City Employees' Retirement System
(NYCERS) with Tier III status, who was employed with the New  York  City
Employees'  Retirement System (NYCERS) on July 6, 1976 until August 1978
and was employed with the New York city transit  authority  from  August
1978  to  February  2,  2013 when upon such date he retired, and who for
reasons not ascribable to his own negligence was not offered  membership
in  the  New York City Employees' Retirement System on July 6, 1976 as a
Tier II member, shall, upon application filed with the Board of Trustees
of NYCERS on or before the thirty-first day of December next  succeeding
the date on which this act shall have become a law, be reclassified as a
Tier  II member with July 6, 1976 as his date of membership and shall be
entitled to every right, benefit and privilege  which  would  have  been
available  to him in accordance with Tier II status, and the city of New
York, as Thomas Steier's employer from July 6, 1976 until  August  1978,
is  responsible for such error and shall be responsible for all costs to
provide the Tier II benefit to Thomas Steier, provided,  however  Thomas
Steier  shall  be  responsible  for  contributing  the  required  member
contributions for Tier II membership.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  PROVISIONS OF PROPOSED LEGISLATION:  The  proposed  legislation  would
authorize  the  New York City Employees' Retirement System ("NYCERS") to
accept an application from Thomas Steier, a Tier IV NYCERS  member  with
Tier III rights, to be reclassified as a Tier II member.
  BACKGROUND:  Mr.  Steier  was originally employed by NYCERS on July 6,
1976 and would have been a Tier II member of NYCERS had  he  joined  the
system prior to the establishment of Tier III on July 27, 1976. However,

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