 AN ACT to authorize the county of Columbia to offer an  optional  twenty
   year  retirement  plan to Theodore Blank, a deputy sheriff employed by
   such county

   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,
 Theodore  Blank,  a  member  of the optional twenty-five year retirement
 plan for certain sheriffs, undersheriffs, deputy sheriffs and correction
 officers pursuant to section 89-p of the retirement and social  security
 law,  who  was  employed  as  Columbia  county  sheriff in 2014, and who
 through no fault of his own, failed to  file  a  timely  application  to
 participate  in  the  special  twenty  year retirement plan contained in
 section 553 of the retirement and social security law resulting  in  the
 crediting  of  his service with the county of Columbia in the retirement
 plan contained in section 89-p of such law, shall be given  full  credit
 in the section 553 twenty year retirement plan for such service upon the
 election of the county of Columbia to assume the additional cost of such
 service  and  his  election  to  participate in such plan. The county of
 Columbia may so elect within one year of the effective date of this act,
 by filing with the state comptroller a resolution of its local  legisla-
 tive  body  together  with  certification  that  such member did not bar
 himself from participation in such retirement plan as a  result  of  his
 own negligence.
   §  2. Such deputy sheriff may elect to be covered by the provisions of
 section 553 of the retirement and social security law and shall be enti-
 tled to the full rights and benefits associated with coverage under such
 section by filing a request to that effect with  the  state  comptroller
 within eighteen months of the effective date of this act.
   §  3.  All employer past service costs associated with the implementa-
 tion of this act shall be borne by Columbia county, and may be amortized
 over a period of five years.
   § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
