Brothers and Sisters;
Early this evening Senator Simpson, the sponsor of the Senate FRS bill filed two “strike all” amendments that will replace the language in  his bill with the language from the House FRS bill.   If adopted this bill will close the FRS pension plan to all new hires next year, and eliminate the current survivor benefit for line of duty deaths.
I would encourage every FPF and Florida Retirement System members to begin calling your State Senator’s office tomorrow and ask them to vote NO on the Simpson amendments to SB 1392.  This move was an anticipated scenario and we will need at least 6 Republicans to vote with the Democrats to kill the amendments.  We are also working on procedural challenges.
Don’t know who your State Senator is? click on this link and type in your zip code for the contact information.  There are only 4 days left and we must shore up our Senate votes, whether you have called previously or not we need your help now.

If Senate bill 1392 passes as amended it will be the death knell for the Florida Retirement System for all current and retired members as well.
PLEASE  MAKE THE CALL!
Fraternally,
Gary Rainey, President
