BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
Michael  Sprague,  a  member  of the New York state and local police and
fire retirement system, who was appointed as a police officer  with  the
village of Port Chester on January 7, 2013, and who, through no fault of
his  own,  failed  to  file  a  timely application to participate in the
special twenty year retirement plan contained in section  384-d  of  the
retirement  and  social  security  law resulting in the crediting of his
service with the village of Port Chester in the general retirement  plan
contained  in  section  375-i of such law, shall be given full credit in
the special twenty year  retirement  plan  for  such  service  upon  the
election of the village of Port Chester to assume the additional cost of
such service. Thereafter, Michael Sprague may elect to be covered by the
provisions  of  section 384-d 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 the effect with the
state comptroller within one year of the effective date of this act.
  § 2. All employer past service costs associated with implementing  the
provisions of this act shall be borne by the village of Port Chester and
may be amortized over a ten year period.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill will allow Michael Sprague, a police officer employed by the
Village of Port Chester, to elect to become covered under the provisions
of Sections 384-d.
