This is the last week for the Florida Legislature. It is extremely important not to be lax this week and let the politicians sneak in some last minute bargain and cut your benefits. There are still some 30 bills (2010 Legislation affecting FRS) still on the table that could be acted on. If all 650,000 FRS participants inundate the representatives and senators it will have a positive result. Please review the Crist SB6 Veto article, where Governor Crist stated the 100,000 calls and letters he received from you were instrumental in his actions!
Don’t forget how quickly the house approved HB 5701 to cut your Health Insurance Subsidy! It would not be good to wake up Sunday morning to discover a late night session on Saturday ended with cuts to your benefits! Check out the Last minute dealmaking in Tallahassee! Deals are being cut right and left this week. Make sure your representatives and senators know how you feel!
