Introduced  by  Sens.  LARKIN,  BONACIC,  DeFRANCISCO  -- read twice and
  ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee  on
  Civil Service and Pensions

AN  ACT  to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to
  authorizing retired firefighters to be employed as instructor of  fire
  sciences by a career and technical education center without diminution
  of his or her retirement benefits

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

  Section 1. The retirement and social security law is amended by adding
a new section 214-c to read as follows:
  S 214-C. EMPLOYMENT OF CERTAIN RETIRED PERSONS WHO RETIRED  FROM  FIRE
SERVICE.   NOTWITHSTANDING   THE  PROVISIONS  OF  THIS  CHAPTER  OR  THE
PROVISIONS OF ANY STATE OR LOCAL LAW OR  CHARTER  TO  THE  CONTRARY,  NO
RETIRED PERSON WHO RETIRED FROM FIRE SERVICE AS A MEMBER OF THE NEW YORK
STATE  AND  LOCAL POLICE AND FIRE RETIREMENT SYSTEM OR THE NEW YORK FIRE
DEPARTMENT PENSION FUND, AND WHO IS EMPLOYED BY A CAREER  AND  TECHNICAL
EDUCATION  CENTER AS AN INSTRUCTOR IN A FIRE SCIENCE PROGRAM APPROVED BY
THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, SHALL HAVE HIS OR HER RETIREMENT ALLOWANCE  OR
BENEFITS  SUSPENDED  OR  REDUCED  BECAUSE OF COMPENSATION EARNED BY SUCH
RETIRED PERSON FROM SERVICE AS A FIRE SCIENCE INSTRUCTOR.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill will allow retired firefighters of the New  York  State  and
Local  Police  and  Fire  Retirement  System  or  the New York City Fire
Department Pension Fund to work  as  a  fire  science  instructor  in  a
program  approved  by  the New York State Department of Education and to
continue to receive their retirement benefit.
  If this bill is enacted, insofar as it will affect the New York  State
and  Local  Police and Fire Retirement System, we expect few retirees to
be affected. There would be negligible additional annual costs.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD02174-02-5
