 AN ACT to authorize the county of Broome to  offer  an  optional  twenty
   year  retirement  plan  to  Joshua Quinn, a deputy sheriff employed by
   such county
   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 Joshua  Quinn, a member of the optional twenty-five year retirement plan
 for certain sheriffs,  undersheriffs,  deputy  sheriffs  and  correction
 officers  pursuant to section 89-m of the retirement and social security
 law, who was employed by Broome county as a corrections  officer  as  of
 February  2,  2015,  who was then promoted to deputy sheriff on March 3,
 2015, 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 552 of the retirement and social  security  law  at
 the  time  of his promotion to deputy sheriff resulting in the crediting
 of his service  with  the  county  of  Broome  in  the  retirement  plan
 contained in section 89-m of such law, shall be given full credit in the
 section  552  twenty  year  retirement plan for such service as a deputy
 sheriff upon the election of the county of Broome to  assume  the  addi-
 tional  cost  of  such  service  and his election to participate in such
 plan. The county of Broome may so elect within one year of the effective
 date of this act, by filing with the state comptroller a  resolution  of
 its  local legislative 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 552 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.
