Participation in the state retiree health benefits program. Creates an exception to the law that if a state retiree elects to participate in the state retiree health plan, but later discontinues participation, he is barred from future participation. The bill would allow a state retiree to discontinue participation, but later return to the plan, if the discontinuation was due to employment with the federal government and participation in a federal employee health benefit program.
