AN  ACT  to  amend  the  administrative code of the city of New York, in
  relation to promotions of lieutenants

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

  Section  1.  Section  14-114 of the administrative code of the city of
New York is amended by adding a new subdivision d to read as follows:
  D. WHEN A LIEUTENANT SHALL HAVE SERVED IN THE RANK OF LIEUTENANT FOR A
PERIOD OF FIFTEEN YEARS, HE OR SHE SHALL HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS IN RESPECT
TO THE POLICE PENSION FUND AS A LIEUTENANT DETAILED TO ACT AS LIEUTENANT
COMMANDER DETECTIVE SQUAD OR LIEUTENANT SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  SUMMARY OF BILL: This proposed legislation would amend  Administrative
Code of the City of New York (ACCNY) Section 14-114 to allow for a Lieu-
tenant  of  the  New  York City Police Department (NYPD), who has been a
Lieutenant for at least 15 years, to have the same rights in respect  to
the  New York City Police Pension Fund (POLICE) as a Lieutenant detailed
to act as a lieutenant commander detective squad or  lieutenant  special
assignment.
  Effective Date: Upon enactment.
  IMPACT ON BENEFITS: The proposed legislation would permit Lieutenants,
who have served in the rank of Lieutenant for at least 15 years, to have
their pension calculations based on a higher-grade salary.
  A  Lieutenant,  assuming a service retirement benefit with 20 years of
service (15 of which was in the title of a Lieutenant), who would  bene-
fit  under  this  proposed  legislation,  if  enacted,  would receive an
increase in their annual pension benefit,  due  to  the  assumed  higher
salary grade and overtime, of approximately $7,000 per year.
