AN  ACT  granting  retroactive tier III membership in the New York state
  and local employees' retirement system to Steven R. Grice

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

  Section  1.  Notwithstanding  any other law to the contrary, Steven R.
Grice, who is currently a Tier VI member of the New York state and local
employees' retirement system and currently employed  by  the  county  of
Genesee, and who commenced employment with the county of Genesee on June
22,  1981,  and  who,  for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence,
failed to become a member of the New York  state  and  local  employees'
retirement  system in 1981, may be deemed to have become a member of the
New York state and local employees' retirement system on June 22,  1981,
if  within  one  year of the effective date of this act he shall file an
application therefor with the state comptroller. Upon  receipt  of  such
application, Steven R. Grice shall be granted Tier III status in the New
York  state  and  local employees' retirement system and be eligible for
all the rights and benefits thereof. No contributions made  to  the  New
York  state  and  local  employees' retirement system by Steven R. Grice
shall be returned to him pursuant to this act.
  § 2. Any past service costs incurred in implementing the provisions of
this act shall be borne by the county of Genesee.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill will grant Tier 3 status in the New  York  State  and  Local
Employees' Retirement System to Steven R. Grice, a current Tier 6 member
employed by the county of Genesee, by changing his date of membership to
June  22, 1981, his first date of employment with the county of Genesee.
There will be no refund of member contributions. As a Tier 3 member with
over 10 years of membership, he will no longer be required  to  make  3%
member contributions.

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