Florida Governor Signs Bill on Public Employee Pensions; Lawsuit Looms

Despite a lawsuit from the Florida Education Association and other public worker unions, Gov. Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 2100 into law, and now all government employees must contribute three percent of their salaries to the Florida Retirement System. Scott said that the new bill will save taxpayers and employers roughly $2 billion a year. The new law will be in effect starting July 1, 2011.
