Senate BillNo. 309

February 23, 2015

An act to amend Section 31621 of the Government Code, relating to county employees’ retirement.


SB 309, as introduced, Morrell. County employees’ retirement: contribution rates.

The County Employees Retirement Law of 1937 (CERL) authorizes counties to establish retirement systems pursuant to its provisions in order to provide pension benefits to county and district employees. CERL establishes the normal rates of contribution for members based on providing a specified, average annuity at 60 years of age.

This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.

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