AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation to service  award
  programs

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

  Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subdivision 8  of  section  219-d  of  the
general  municipal  law,  as  amended  by  a chapter of the laws of 2017
amending the general municipal law relating to service  award  programs,
as  proposed in legislative bills numbers S. 899 and A. 6873, is amended
to read as follows:
  (b) The entitlement age, the number  of  years  of  ambulance  service
required  to  obtain  a nonforfeitable right to a service award, and the
activities for which points shall be granted toward a year of  ambulance
service  may be changed by resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of
at least sixty percent of the governing board  of  the  sponsor  without
referendum;  provided,  that, consistent with the provisions of subdivi-
sion three of section two hundred [nineteen-m] NINETEEN-E of this [chap-
ter] ARTICLE, if the effect of the amendment is to increase  the  number
of  points  granted  for  the  performance of the activity, decrease the
amount of an activity required  to  earn  the  points  granted  for  the
performance of the activity, or both, such amendment shall be subject to
a  mandatory  referendum. Any amendment to a service award program shall
only take effect as of the first of January next  succeeding  completion
of the proceedings required for adoption of the amendment and shall only
apply prospectively.
  S  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
manner as a chapter of the laws of 2017 amending the  general  municipal
law  relating to service award programs as proposed in legislative bills
numbers S. 899 and A. 6873, takes effect.
