AN  ACT  to  amend  the  administrative code of the city of New York, in
  relation to the medical board of the New York city employees'  retire-
  ment system

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

  Section 1. Subdivision a of section 13-123 of the administrative  code
of  the  city of New York, as amended by local law number 59 of the city
of New York for the year 1996, is amended to read as follows:
  a. (1) There shall be a medical board of three physicians. One of such
physicians shall be appointed by the board and shall hold office at  the
pleasure  of  such  board, one shall be appointed by the commissioner of
health and shall hold office at the pleasure of such  commissioner,  and
the third shall be appointed by the commissioner of citywide administra-
tive  services and shall hold office at the pleasure of such commission-
er.
  (2) The board, the commissioner of  health  and  the  commissioner  of
citywide administrative services shall each have power to appoint one or
more but not exceeding [four] SEVEN alternate physicians, who shall hold
office  at  the  pleasure of such appointing board or official. Whenever
the board of trustees of the retirement  system  shall  so  direct,  the
functions,  powers and duties of the medical board, in addition to being
performed and exercised by the three physicians  appointed  pursuant  to
paragraph  one  of this subdivision, shall be performed and exercised by
one or more groups of three physicians as hereinafter  prescribed.  Each
such  group of three physicians shall function separately as the medical
board and each such group may consist partly of a  physician  or  physi-
cians appointed pursuant to paragraph one of this subdivision and partly
of one or more alternate physicians or may consist entirely of alternate
physicians;  provided,  however, that one of the physicians or alternate
physicians in each such group shall be appointed by the  board,  one  by
the  commissioner  of  health  and  one  by the commissioner of citywide
administrative services.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
