 AN ACT to authorize the town of Niskayuna, in the county of Schenectady,

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 the  town  of  Niskayuna,  in the county of Schenectady, a participating
 employer in the New York state and  local  police  and  fire  retirement
 system,  which  previously elected to offer the optional retirement plan
 established pursuant to section 384 of the retirement and social securi-
 ty law to police officers employed by such town, is hereby authorized to
 make participation in such plan available to John F.  Connor, Jeffrey A.
 Relation, Joseph H. Twitty and Paul J. Daly, police officers employed by
 the town of Niskayuna, who, on  the  effective  date  of  this  act  are
 covered  under  the  provisions  of  section 375-c of the retirement and
 social security law, and who, for reasons not ascribable  to  their  own
 negligence  failed  to  make a timely application to participate in such
 optional retirement plan. The town of Niskayuna may so elect  by  filing
 with  the state comptroller, on or before June 30, 2022, a resolution of
 its legislative body together with certification that  any  such  police
 officer  did  not  bar  himself  or  herself  from participation in such
 retirement plan as a result of his or her  own  negligence.  Thereafter,
 any  such  police  officer  may elect to be covered by the provisions of
 section 384 of the retirement and social  security  law,  and  shall  be
 entitled  to the full rights and benefits associated with coverage under
 such section, by filing a request to that effect with  the  state  comp-
 troller on or before June 30, 2023.
