  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1.  Section 8 of the volunteer firefighters' benefit  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  574  of  the  laws  of 1998, is amended to read as
follows:
  S 8. Permanent total disability benefits. 1.  In  the  case  of  total
disability  adjudged  to be permanent the volunteer firefighter shall be
paid four hundred dollars for each week [during the  continuance  there-

shall exist only if the earning capacity of  the  volunteer  firefighter

eyes,  or  any two thereof, shall, in the absence of conclusive proof to
the contrary, constitute permanent total disability, but  in  all  other
cases  permanent total disability shall be determined in accordance with
the facts. Notwithstanding any other  provisions  of  this  chapter,  an
injured  volunteer firefighter disabled due to the loss or total loss of
use of both eyes, or both hands, or both arms, or  both  feet,  or  both
legs,  or any two thereof shall not suffer any diminution of such weekly
benefit by engaging in business or employment provided his or her weekly
earnings or wages, when combined with his or her  weekly  benefit  shall
not  be  in excess of six hundred dollars; and further provided that the
application of this section shall not result in  reduction  of  benefits
which  an  injured volunteer firefighter who is disabled due to the loss
or total loss of use of both eyes, or both hands, or both arms, or  both
feet,  or  both  legs, or any two thereof would otherwise be entitled to
under any other provisions of this article.
