CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 2310


Introduced by Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry

February 13, 2018


An act to amend Section 20469 of the Government Code, relating to public employees’ retirement.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2310, as introduced, Aguiar-Curry. Public Employees’ Retirement System: contracting members.
Existing law, the Public Employees’ Retirement Law (PERL), establishes the Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS), which provides a defined benefit to members of the system, based on final compensation, credited service, and age at retirement, subject to certain variations. PERL authorizes a public agency to contract to make its employees members of PERS, and prescribes a process for this. PERL authorizes a public agency wishing to participate in PERS to request a quotation of the approximate contributions that would be required in this regard. If the governing body intends to approve the proposed contract, PERL requires the body to adopt a resolution giving notice of that intention and prohibits approval of the contract until an election has been held that permits the employees to be included in PERS to express their approval or disapproval.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the provisions requiring a governing body to adopt a resolution and conditioning contract approval on holding an election, as described above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 20469 of the Government Code is amended to read:

20469.
 If If, after receiving the approximate contribution quotation quotation, the governing body intends to approve the proposed contract, it shall adopt a resolution giving notice of that intention. The resolution shall contain a summary of the major provisions of the proposed retirement plan. The contract shall not be approved unless an election has been held to permit the employees proposed to be included in this system to express by secret ballot their approval or disapproval of the retirement proposal. Prior to the election election, each governing body shall be furnished with a schedule of rates of contribution of members, which shall be made available by the governing body to each employee proposed to be included in this system. The ballot at the election shall include the summary of the retirement plan as set forth in the resolution. The election shall be conducted in the manner prescribed by the governing body which and shall be such as to permit the firefighters, the police officers, the county peace officers, and the other employees proposed to be included in this system to express separately their approval or disapproval.
