AN ACT granting retroactive membership in the New York state  and  local
  employees' retirement system to Michael Posillico

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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other  law  to  the  contrary,  Michael
Posillico,  a  member  of  the  New York State and Local Police and Fire
Retirement System, who was employed as a  park  attendant/dockworker  by
the town of Brookhaven as of May 6, 2002, who for reasons not ascribable
to  his  own negligence, failed to become a member of the New York state
and local employees' retirement system during  such  employment  in  the
town  of  Brookhaven,  shall be deemed to have joined the New York state
and local employees' retirement system on May  6,  2002,  and  shall  be
granted Tier IV status in such retirement system, if, within one year of
the effective date of this act, he shall file a written request with the
state comptroller.
  § 2. All past service costs of implementing the provisions of this act
shall be borne by the state of New York.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This  bill  would provide Michael V. Posillico a date of membership of
May 6, 2002 resulting in Tier 2 status in the New York State  and  Local
Police and Fire Retirement System. The member is currently in Tier 5.
  If this bill is enacted during the 2020 legislative session, we antic-
ipate  that  there  will  be  an increase of approximately $4,200 in the
annual contributions of Suffolk County for the fiscal year ending  March
31,  2021. In future years, this cost will vary as the billing rates and
salary of Michael V. Posillico change.
  In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be
an immediate past service cost of approximately  $45,800 which  will  be
borne  by  the State of New York as a one-time payment. This estimate is
based on the assumption that payment will be made on March 1, 2021.
