AN  ACT  granting  retroactive  membership with tier I status in the New
  York teachers' retirement system to James J. DeMarco

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Notwithstanding  any  other law to the contrary, James J.
DeMarco, who was employed as a seasonal employee with the New York power
authority with a start date of July 17, 1969, and  who  is  currently  a
retired  member  of  the New York state teachers' retirement system, who
through no fault of his own did not become a  member  of  the  New  York
state and local employees' retirement system on July 17, 1969 when first
employed by the New York power authority shall be deemed to have  been a
member  of  the New York state and local employees' retirement system on
such date he commenced his  employment  and  shall  be  granted  Tier  I
status,  provided  that an application is filed with the head of the New
York state teachers' retirement system within one year from  the  effec-
tive date of this act.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill would allow James J. DeMarco, a retired Tier 2 member of the
New York State Teachers' Retirement System, to be reclassified as a Tier
1 member. His date of membership would be changed based upon his employ-
ment  as  a  seasonal employee in 1969 for the New York Power Authority.
Additionally, Mr. DeMarco's pension would be recalculated with  retroac-
tive  adjustment to payments made since his date of retirement of Decem-
ber 7, 2007.
  The cost of this benefit is equal to the increase in the present value
of liabilities, which is estimated to be $437,000.
  Employee data is from the system's  most  recent  actuarial  valuation
files,  consisting  of  data provided by the employers to the Retirement

LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION memorializing Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to
proclaim March 15, 2016, as Dyslexia Awareness Day in the State of New
York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that the State of New
York is committed to equal educational opportunities by identifying
obstacles to educational advancement and helping to remove those obsta-
cles; and
WHEREAS, Dyslexia, which often runs in families, is a language-based
learning disability that is neurobiological in origin which interferes
with language processing, accurate and/or fluent word recognition,
spelling and decoding abilities and reading comprehension despite aver-
age or above average intelligence; and
WHEREAS, Dyslexia varies in severity ranging from mild to profound and
is characterized by a combination of difficulties with phonological and
orthographic processing leading to difficulties in reading, writing,
spelling, handwriting and/or math which can create a wide gap between an
individual's intellectual ability and their academic and/or personal
achievement; and
WHEREAS, Dyslexia is identifiable as early as 4-6 years of age and
early intervention is beneficial as the negative consequences are highly
preventable through effective, direct instruction in phonemic awareness,
phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension; and
WHEREAS, Dyslexia can affect anyone, regardless of race, gender,
culture or socioeconomic status and impacts up to 20% of the population;
and
WHEREAS, Literacy skills for everyone is an important goal for the
State of New York and dyslexia affects a high percentage of our struggl-
ing readers, and it is important that we learn to recognize and to
address this learning difference so that each person in New York has the
opportunity to be able to learn, read and spell proficiently and reach
their full potential; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim March 15, 2016, as
Dyslexia Awareness Day in the State of New York; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of New
York.
