AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  annual  earnings  limitations  for retired police officers employed as
  school resource officers

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

  Section  1.  Section  212 of the retirement and social security law is
amended by adding a new subdivision 4 to read as follows:
  4. NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF SUBDIVISIONS ONE AND TWO OF  THIS
SECTION,  SUCH  ANNUAL EARNINGS LIMITATIONS FOR A RETIRED POLICE OFFICER
EMPLOYED BY A SCHOOL DISTRICT IN EITHER THE CLASSIFIED  OR  UNCLASSIFIED
SERVICE  AS  A  SCHOOL  RESOURCE  OFFICER, SCHOOL SAFETY OFFICER, SCHOOL
SECURITY OFFICER OR ANY OTHER SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR POSITION  OR  OFFICE
THAT  IS  DESIGNED  TO PROVIDE SAFETY AND/OR SECURITY ON SCHOOL GROUNDS,
PROVIDED THAT SUCH RETIRED POLICE OFFICER IS DULY  QUALIFIED,  COMPETENT
AND  PHYSICALLY  FIT  FOR  PERFORMANCE  OF THE DUTIES OF THE POSITION IN
WHICH HE OR SHE IS TO BE EMPLOYED AS DETERMINED BY THE  SCHOOL  DISTRICT
AND IS PROPERLY CERTIFIED WHERE SUCH CERTIFICATION IS REQUIRED, SHALL BE
$50,000 FOR THE YEAR 2018 AND THEREAFTER.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  will  allow  retired  police  officers to be employed by a
school district as a school safety officer, school security  officer  or
any  other  substantially  similar position for an annual salary of less
than $50,000 and continue to  receive  their  full  retirement  benefit.
Currently, this privilege is only allowed to retired police officers who
are employed as a school resource officer.
  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.
  Summary of relevant resources:
  The  membership  data  used  in  measuring  the impact of the proposed
change was the same as that used in the March 31, 2016  actuarial  valu-
