A08692 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8692
 
SPONSOR: Rozic
  PURPOSE: The purpose of this legislation is to provide members of the volunteer fire service with the opportunity to earn credit in the state pension system.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. amends the retirement and social security law by adding a new article 20-a which provides members of the volunteer fire service with the opportunity to earn credit in the state pension system. Section 2. is the enacting clause.   JUSTIFICATION: Our volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers put their lives on the line to help others without regard for the implications they or their families may face as the result of the dangers associated with their heroism. The brave men and women who respond to fires, natural disasters, pandem- ics, and all manner of other catastrophes often incur lifelong health conditions and other ills; they should be recognized by the state for their service. This bill would provide our volunteer firefighters and ambulance workers with the opportunity to earn one year of credit in the state pension system for every five years served up to a maximum of three years of credit.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: See Fiscal Note   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
