 who is currently a member of 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  on
 May  10,  2006 when first employed by the Warwick Valley school district
 shall be deemed to have been a member of the New York  state  and  local
 employees'  retirement  system  on such date he commenced his employment
 and shall be granted Tier IV status, provided  that  an  application  is
 filed  with  the head of the New York state and local employees' retire-
 ment system within one year from the effective date of this act.    Upon

 this act shall be borne by the Warwick Valley school district.
