Florida TaxWatch Commends Legislature for Taking Up FRS Reforms

TALLAHASSEE – A statement from Dominic M. Calabro, President & CEO of Florida TaxWatch: “Florida TaxWatch commends the legislature for taking up needed reforms of the Florida Retirement System, and is encouraged to see the Florida House of Representatives’ Government Operations Subcommittee workshopping a shift to a defined contribution model, consistent with long-standing TaxWatch recommendations. These reforms are prudent, align the state with best practices of the private sector, and provide long-term predictability for the legislature in budgeting.”

Note: This TaxWatch recommendation appeared most recently in the Report and Recommendations of the Florida TaxWatch Government Cost Savings Task Force for FY2013-14, available here.
