Introduced by Rep. Mark Meadows (D) on September 11, 2012, to exempt “retired” state employees from a law that restricts their going back to work for the state and simultaneously collecting a pension. The exemption would apply if the person is age 60 or more, is engaged by the state as an independent contractor (rather than as an employee), and receives compensation less than 50 percent of the pension benefit amount. Also, to repeal the double-dipping restriction if the “retiree” has different duties with a different state department than the person’s previous state job. Full Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Appropriations Committee on September 11, 2012.
