Rick Scott keeps his promise on pension reform, PolitiFact Florida finds

Rick Scott didn't get all of the pension reforms he wanted for state employees during the 2011 legislative session.

But he got a lot.

For the first time in decades, state employees will be required to redirect part of their salaries to pay for part of their retirement benefits. Beginning July 1, 2011, all state employees will be required to put 3 percent of their salaries toward retirement.

That's a Promise Kept for Scott on PolitiFact Florida's Scott-O-Meter. Read why.
