FLORIDA GOVERNOR SIGNS FIRE AND POLICE PENSION LEGISLATION: 

On June 1, 2009, Florida Governor Charlie Crist signed into law CS SB 538, an act relating to publicly funded retirement programs.  The law makes significant amendments to Chapter 175, Florida Statutes (firefighters) and Chapter 185, Florida Statutes (police officers).  The law is effective July 1, 2009, although certain provisions need not be complied with until January 1, 2010.  The entire 37-page law is available at http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sections/Documents/loaddoc.aspx?FileName=_s0538er.DOCX&DocumentType=Bill&BillNumber=0538&Session=2009.  In the near future, we will do a detailed Newsletter analyzing each section of the new law.
