HB 624 Georgia Legislative Retirement System; define certain terms; change certain provisions

Voted on Wednesday February 28, 2018

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

This legislation would create a new method for calculating retirement benefits is provided for those who are members on or after July 1, 2018. These members will receive an allowance equal to thirty-eight percent of the member's average monthly salary or the monthly retirement allowance provided by Code, whichever is greater.

Most importantly- it accurately defines a legislative term as the date of commission to end of commission, rather than two 365 day years (can make it very messy dependent on election dates)
