AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  annual earnings limitations for retired police officers

  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 PROVISIONS OF SUBDIVISIONS ONE AND TWO OF THIS
SECTION, SUCH ANNUAL EARNINGS LIMITATIONS FOR A RETIRED  POLICE  OFFICER
EMPLOYED  BY  A  SCHOOL  DISTRICT  OR A BOARD OF COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL
SERVICES, IN EITHER THE CLASSIFIED OR UNCLASSIFIED SERVICE AS  A  SCHOOL
RESOURCE  OFFICER, SCHOOL SAFETY OFFICER, SCHOOL SECURITY OFFICER OR ANY
OTHER SUBSTANTIALLY SIMILAR POSITION  OR  OFFICE  THAT  IS  DESIGNED  TO
PROVIDE  SAFETY  AND/OR  SECURITY  ON SCHOOL GROUNDS, PROVIDED THAT SUCH
RETIRED POLICE OFFICER IS DULY QUALIFIED, COMPETENT AND  PHYSICALLY  FIT
FOR  PERFORMANCE  OF THE DUTIES OF THE POSITION IN WHICH HE OR SHE IS TO
BE EMPLOYED AS DETERMINED BY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OR BOARD OF COOPERATIVE
EDUCATIONAL SERVICES AND IS PROPERLY CERTIFIED WHERE SUCH  CERTIFICATION
IS  REQUIRED,  SHALL BE FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND
NINETEEN AND THEREAFTER.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE: Insofar as this bill will affect the New York  State  and
Local  Police  and  Fire  Retirement System (PFRS), this bill will allow
retired police officers who are employed  by  a  school  district  as  a
school  resource officer, school safety officer, school security officer
or any other substantially similar position with  an  annual  salary  of
$50,000  or  less and continue to receive their full retirement benefit.
Currently, the salary limit is $30,000.
  If this bill is enacted, we expect few retirees to be affected.  There
would  be  negotiable additional annual costs. However, if large numbers
