AN ACT to authorize James E. McTammany to receive an accidental disabil-
  ity retirement


  Section  1.  Notwithstanding  any  other  provision  of  law, James E.
McTammany, who was employed by the town of Greece from January 24,  1974
until  September 15, 1991 and for the office of emergency communications
for the city of Rochester from September 16, 1991 until July  25,  1995,
and who was critically injured in September 1994 as a result of an inju-
ry  on  the  job and was unable to return to work after surgery in March
1995, and who was denied an accidental disability  retirement  from  the
New York state and local retirement system, and who, as of the effective
date of this act, is on regular service disability or receiving an ordi-
nary  disability benefit, shall be entitled to reapply for an accidental
disability retirement from the  New  York  state  and  local  retirement
system  if  on  or  before December 31, 2021, he files a written request
with the state comptroller to such effect.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.-- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill would allow James E. McTammany, an ordinary disability reti-
ree in the New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System  (ERS),
to  reapply  for  an accidental disability retirement. Mr. McTammany was
previously denied the accidental disability in 1995, and  this  decision
was upheld at a hearing in 1997.
  If  this  legislation  is enacted during the 2020 legislative session,
there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately  $247,000.
This  estimated cost assumes that the ERS will approve Mr. McTammany for
the accidental disability retirement after he reapplies pursuant to this
legislation. It also assumes that his increased benefit will be retroac-
tive to his ordinary disability date of retirement. The  cost  would  be
shared  by  the State of New York and all of the participating employers
in the ERS.
