Double-dip watch

Posted By on Fri, Mar 12, 2010 at 4:13 PM

A number of high state officials who "retired" long enough to be rehired in the same positions so that they could both draw retirement benefits and regular pay never let go of some pricey perks, legislators heard today. This didn't make the "retirements" illegal, as in the case of some elected officials. Just smells bad, like the whole system did. At least seven local elected officials may have to pay some money back for their failure to vacate offices to qualify for retirement.

Also pending is the final word on some teacher retirement double dips mishandled under previous leadership of that system and before law changes were made.
