Florida TaxWatch Statement on State Employee Pension Plans

TALLAHASSEE- A statement from Florida TaxWatch President & CEO, Dominic M. Calabro:

“Florida TaxWatch was extremely pleased this afternoon to hear Speaker-Designate Will Weatherford address the issue of state employee retirement plans. Moving state employees into a defined contribution plan has long been a recommendation of Florida TaxWatch and the Florida TaxWatch Government Cost Savings Task Force. Today, in fact, the Task Force for FY 2013-14, Chaired by Mr. John Alexander of Alico, Inc., met in Orlando to review draft language for its upcoming Report and Recommendations, and specifically reaffirmed the importance of this particular recommendation. Florida TaxWatch looks forward to working with the Speaker-Designate to implement this policy for new state employees starting in FY 2013-14.”
