Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill allows, but does not require, a game warden who has accumulated retirement benefits under the Maine Public Employees Retirement System (MainePERS) while working in law enforcement positions covered under different retirement plans to have that service time accumulated when a game warden transfers to a different law enforcement position.  Because any costs associated with this provision are to be paid by the game warden, or the employer if the employer chooses to do so, there is no fiscal impact to MainePERS or the State.
The provisions in this bill that allow members in the Participating Local District Retirement Program to purchase service credit will also have no fiscal impact on the State or MainePERS.
