Reemployment of Retired Law Enforcement Officers (Monitor) – Failed

CS/SB 400 (Burgess) and HB 853 (McClure) specify that retired law enforcement officers can be reemployed in a position that qualifies for the Special Risk Class by an employer that participates in the Florida Retirement System. The bills reduce the timeframe from 12 months to 6 months during which a former employee is prohibited from receiving both a reemployment salary and retirement benefits. CS/SB 400 was amended to apply to all FRS retirees, not just law enforcement and includes employer contribution rate adjustments to meet actuarial projections. (Chapman)
