August 1, 2007 through the present and was an employee of  the  town  of
Greece  and  the  North Greece fire district commencing October 13, 1975
through January 1, 1986 and was thereby eligible to participate  in  the
New  York  state  and local employees' retirement system, who through no
fault of his own did not become a member of the New York state and local
employees' retirement system when he was first employed by the  town  of
Greece  in  October 1975, shall be granted retroactive membership in the
New York state and local  employees'  retirement  system  with  Tier  II
status,  if within one year from the effective date of this act he shall
make a written application to that effect, duly executed and filed  with
such retirement system.
  §  2. No contributions made to the New York state and local employees'
retirement system by Walter C. Bedford shall be returned or refunded  to
him pursuant to this act.
  § 3. All costs associated with the implementation of this act shall be
borne by the state of New York.
  § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.-- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  will  allow  Walter  C. Bedford, who is currently a Tier 4
member in the New York State  and  Local  Employees'  Retirement  System
employed  by the North Greece Fire District, to elect Tier 2 status with
a date of membership of October 13, 1975, his first date  of  employment
with  the  Town  of  Greece.  There will be no refund of member contrib-
utions.
  If this bill is enacted during the 2020 legislative session and Tier 2
