    The Bill repeals prior disability provisions that were never intended to be included in the Plan. The repeal does not impact the benefits expected to become payable under the Plan in the current Actuarial Valuation for the Plan. Therefore, there is no increase in either the Normal Cost nor Actuarial Accrued Liabilities for the Plan.

Explanation of above estimates
    The prior disability provisions being repealed were not intended to be included in the Plan. These provisions were not included in the actuarial valautions for the Plan and therefore the repeal will not change any benefits expected to be payable.
Analysis of Impact on Public Pension Policy
    There are no costs associated with the repeal of the prior disability provisions. If not repealed, the provisions could result in disability benefit claims from non-members who have never participated in nor contributed to the Plan.
    
    The Bill results in Plan benefits consistent with the original intent of the Plan and its benefit design and funding contribution rates.
