A04856 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A4856A

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the retirement and social security
law, in relation to the limitation for retired police officers
employed as school resource officers

PURPOSE: Removes the earnings limitation for retired police officers
while employed as school resource officers or school safety officers
or other substantially similar positions.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Subdivision 3 of section 212 of the retirement and social
security law is amended to address the employment of retired police
officers as school resource officers or school safety officers or
other substantially similar positions.

JUSTIFICATION:  Retired police officers are well-qualified to protect
our students as school resource officers. Currently, retired public
employees must apply for a "211 Waiver" in order to earn more than
$30,000 per year.  This process, can often become burdensome. The cap
on earnings can deter those best qualified to protect our children
from becoming school resource officers. This bill would allow school
districts to hire retired police officers without needing a "211
Waiver."

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: This bill would remove earnings limitations for
certain employees of a school district, however this is not a mandate
for districts to increase salaries.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
