                    IN SENATE
 
                                    January 14, 2016

        A  BUDGET  BILL,  submitted by the Governor pursuant to article seven of
          the Constitution -- read twice and ordered printed, and  when  printed
          to be committed to the Committee on Finance
 
                    CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY
 
        proposing an amendment to section 7 of article 5 of the constitution, in
          relation  to  forfeiture of pension rights or retirement benefits upon
          conviction of a felony related to public employment
 
     1    Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 7 of  arti-
     2  cle 5 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
     3    §  7.  After  July  first,  nineteen  hundred forty, membership in any
     4  pension or retirement system of the state or of a civil division thereof
     5  shall be a contractual relationship, the benefits of which shall not  be
     6  diminished  or impaired.  A public official who is a member of a pension
     7  or retirement system who is convicted  of  a  crime  related  to  public
     8  office  shall  be  deemed  to  have  wilfully  breached such contractual
     9  relationship regardless of when such relationship was established.  As a
    10  result of such breach, all benefits, rights and privileges he or she may
    11  have under such pension or retirement system  regardless  of  when  such
    12  rights  or  privileges accrued or vested, shall be subject to forfeiture
    13  as provided by law.
    14    § 2. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the  foregoing  amendment
    15  be referred to the first regular legislative session convening after the
    16  next  succeeding  general  election  of members of the assembly, and, in
    17  conformity with  section  1  of  article  19  of  the  constitution,  be
    18  published for 3 months previous to the time of such election.
