 AN ACT granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and
   local employees' retirement system to Maureen Sullivan Nasca

   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 Maureen  Sullivan  Nasca,  an employee of the Erie County Medical Center
 and a member of the New  York  state  and  local  employees'  retirement
 system,  who  was a full-time employee at the Roswell Park Comprehensive
 Cancer Center from December 7, 1995 to December 22, 2013, and  who,  for
 reasons  not ascribable to her own negligence, failed to become a member
 of such retirement system during such employment with the  Roswell  Park
 Comprehensive  Cancer Center in 1995, shall be deemed to have joined the
 New York state and local employees' retirement system  on  the  date  of
 December  7, 1995 and shall be granted Tier IV status in such retirement
 system if, within one year of the effective date of this act, she  shall
 file a written request with the state comptroller.
   §  2. No contributions made to the New York state and local employees'
 retirement system  by  Maureen  Sullivan  Nasca  shall  be  refunded  or
 returned to her pursuant to this act.
   § 3. All past service costs of implementing the provisions of this act
 shall be borne by the state of New York.
   § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
   FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
   This bill would provide Maureen Sullivan Nasca a date of membership of
 December  7,  1995, resulting in Tier 4 status in the New York State and
 Local Employees' Retirement System. The member is currently in  Tier  6.
 There will be no refund of member contributions.
   If this bill is enacted during the 2022 legislative session, we antic-
 ipate  that  there  will  be an increase of approximately $12,000 in the
 annual contributions of the Erie County Medical Center  for  the  fiscal
 year  ending March 31, 2023. In future years, this cost will vary as the
 billing rates and salary of Maureen Sullivan Nasca change.
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
