Introduced by M. of A. BUCHWALD -- read once and referred to the Commit-
  tee on Governmental Employees

AN  ACT  to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to
  the retiree earnings cap for health care officials and workers  during
  a declared public health related state of emergency

  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  EARNING  LIMITATIONS FOR RETIRED PERSONS SET
FORTH IN THIS SECTION, STATE AND  LOCAL  GOVERNMENTS  MAY  HIRE  RETIRED
PUBLIC  HEALTH  OFFICIALS AND WORKERS AT ANY REASONABLE EARNING LEVEL IN
TIMES OF A DECLARED PUBLIC HEALTH RELATED STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED BY
THE GOVERNOR, PROVIDED THAT SUCH RETIREES HIRED  DURING  SUCH  STATE  OF
EMERGENCY  ARE  HIRED  AND  CONTINUE  TO  BE EMPLOYED FOR THE PURPOSE OF
COMBATTING COVID-19.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill would exempt from the  earnings  limitations  set  forth  in
Section 212 of the Retirement and Social Security Law (RSSL) any retired
public  health  officials  and workers rehired at any reasonable earning
level in times of a declared public health related  state  of  emergency
declared  by the Governor, provided that such retirees hired during such
state of emergency are hired and continue to be employed for the purpose
of combatting COVID-19.
  Insofar as this bill affects the New York State and  Local  Retirement
System (NYSLRS), if this legislation is enacted during the 2020 legisla-
tive  session,  we  expect  there  would be negligible additional annual
costs.  However, if large numbers of retirees are hired  into  positions
with  lucrative earning levels over long periods of time, there could be
additional annual costs which would be shared by the state of  New  York
and all of the participating employers in the NYSLRS.
  Summary of relevant resources:

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