   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 county of Ulster, a participating employer in the New York state and
 local employees' retirement system, which previously  elected  to  offer
 the optional twenty year retirement plan established pursuant to section
 552  of  the  retirement  and  social  security  law, to deputy sheriffs
 employed by such county, is hereby authorized to make  participation  in
 such plan available to Kyle Frano, Joseph Sciutto and Emmett Vedder III,
 deputy  sheriffs  employed by the county of Ulster, who, for reasons not
 ascribable to their own negligence failed to make timely application  to
 participate  in  such  twenty year retirement plan. The county of Ulster
 may so elect by filing with the state comptroller within six  months  of
 the effective date of this act, a resolution of the Ulster county legis-
 lature together with certification that such deputy sheriffs did not bar
 themselves  from  participation  in  such retirement plan as a result of
 their own negligence. Thereafter, such deputy sheriffs may elect  to  be
 covered  by  the  provisions of section 552 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 comptroller within one year of the effective date
 of this act.
   §  2.  All  past  service  costs  associated  with  implementing   the
 provisions of this act shall be borne by the county of Ulster.
   § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
   FISCAL NOTE. -- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
