         FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
         This bill will deem James W. McCarthy, an employee  of  the  New  York
       State Office of Court Administration, to have become a member of the New
       York  State  and  Local Employees' Retirement System on May 1, 1968, his
       first date of employment with the New York State Power Authority, there-
       by granting  him  Tier  1  status.  All  member  contributions  will  be
       refunded.
         If  this bill is enacted, we anticipate that there will be an increase
       of approximately $13,000 in the annual contributions of New  York  State
       for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.
