House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: May 5, 2014 03:44 PM
From: Representative Seth M. Grove
To: All House members
Subject: Amending the County Pension Law, further providing for supplemental benefits

In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation to alleviate county governments of mandates. Under current law, any Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) has to be retroactive which, depending on past increases, could lead to significant tax increases. Unfortunately, this places county commissioners and officials in a difficult position as either they raise taxes or leave retirees years in between COLAs. My bill allows the County Retirement Board to offer retirees a COLA attached to the Cost of Living Index which would allow retirees to receive a needed COLA without adversely affecting the taxpayers.
