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

 AN ACT granting David Ladd retroactive Tier IV  membership  in  the  New
   York state and local employees' retirement system
   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 David Ladd, a member of the New York state and local employees'  retire-
 ment  system, who on November 30, 2009 commenced employment with the New
 York City Department of Probation, and who separated from the  New  York
 city  employees' retirement system on January 7, 2011 and joined the New
 York state employees' retirement  system,  and  has  purchased  credited
 service to November 30, 2009, and who, for reasons not ascribable to his
 own  negligence,  failed to become a member of the New York city employ-
 ees' retirement system on November 30, 2009 and  therefore  has  Tier  V
 instead  of  Tier IV status, shall be deemed to have joined such retire-
 ment system on November 30, 2009, the  commencement  of  his  employment
 with  the  New  York City Department of Probation, if within one year of
 the effective date of this act he shall  file  an  application  therefor
 with the state comptroller. Upon receipt of such application, David Ladd
 shall  be  deemed  to  have joined the retirement system on November 30,
   § 2. All past service costs of implementing the provisions of this act
 shall be borne by the state of New York, and there shall be no refund of
 the members contributions to David Ladd.
   § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
   FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
   This bill would change David Ladd's date of membership in the New York
 State and Local Employees' Retirement System (ERS) to November 30, 2009,
 resulting in Tier 4 status. Currently, David Ladd is a Tier 5 member  in
 ERS. No member contributions will be refunded because of this bill.

  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
