Retirement benefits under state, local or federal government retirement plans that are based on employment compensation for which contributions are not made to the federal Social Security system result in reductions in the amount of Social Security benefits that a retiree is eligible to receive under the federal Windfall Elimination Provision. This bill provides an income tax exemption for those retirement benefits.
This bill amends the law to stipulate that parents have a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education and care of their minor children and prevents courts from limiting these fundamental parental rights unless the limitation is supported by a compelling state interest and narrowly tailored to serve that interest through the least restrictive means possible.
