 Introduced  by  Sen.  COONEY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

 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-

 1995, and who was denied an accidental disability  retirement  from  the

 date of this act, is on regular service disability or receiving an ordi-

 system  if,  within one year of the effective date of this act, he shall
 file a written request with the state comptroller.
   § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.

 previously denied the accidental disability in 1995, and  this  decision
 was upheld at a hearing in 1997.
   If  this  legislation  is enacted during the 2021 legislative session,
 there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately  $253,000.
 This  estimated  cost  assumes that the ERS will approve James McTammany
 for the accidental disability retirement after he reapplies pursuant  to
 this  legislation.  It  also  assumes that his increased benefit will be
