AN ACT granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and
  local employees' retirement system to David Goodman

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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
David  Goodman,  a  member  of  the  New York state and local employees'
retirement system, who on November 24, 2009 commenced part time  employ-
ment  with  the  town  of  Marcy, and who applied for membership in such
retirement system on December 2, 2009, and who, for reasons not ascriba-
ble to his own negligence, failed to become a member  of  the  New  York
state  and  local  employees'  retirement system on December 2, 2009 and
therefore has tier V instead of tier IV status, shall be deemed to  have
joined  such retirement system on November 24, 2009, the commencement of
his employment with the town of Marcy, if within one year of the  effec-
tive  date  of  this  act he shall file an application therefor with the
state comptroller. Upon receipt of such application, David Goodman shall
be deemed to have joined the New York state and local employees' retire-
ment system on November 24, 2009.
  § 2. All past service costs of implementing the provisions of this act
shall be borne by the town of Marcy, and there shall  be  no  refund  of
member contributions to David Goodman.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill would allow David Goodman, currently a Tier 6 member of the
New York State and Local Employees' Retirement  System,  to  elect  into
Tier  4  by  changing his date of membership to November 24, 2009. There
will be no refund of member contributions.
  If this bill is enacted during the 2020 legislative session, we antic-
ipate that there will be an increase  of  approximately  $5,500  in  the
annual  contributions  of  the  Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center for the
fiscal year ending March 31, 2021. In future years, this cost will  vary
as the billing rates and salary of David Goodman change.
