Florida legislators are not embracing the sweeping employee pension reforms being advanced by Gov. Rick Scott.
At a House hearing Wednesday, members grilled a Scott staffer on the financial impact of requiring all new employees to enroll in 401(k)-type investment plans.
"I think we have a budget issue and not a pension issue here in the state of Florida," said Rep. Alan Williams, D-Tallahassee. "Hopefully through this process we can educate our governor in that regard."
