This law makes perfectly good sense to me, anyone elected to a second office after this law is signed has to make a decision, either they can earn service credit for office A or office B. They cannot earn service credit for both. So if you plan to open a Invoice Template Free business and keep your teaching job, you must choose one to receive credit for.

 Wow- how nice!  So Rebekah would rather see "retired" school teachers double dip rather than see the many unemployed younger teachers have a job. I'd be curious as to who runs the consulting firms that place the 'retired" teachers in the jobs. I guess the those aspiring to become teachers and the education of the students weren't part of the considerations of the bill. Gotta keep them old union members on the payroll-right, Rebekah?


Also, I can't think of any private firm that lets someone retire, and continue to contribute to their pension plan while drawing both retirement pay and an income from the same system.
