The Florida Supreme Court has agreed to take up the case of state workers who sued the Legislature over its decision to require them to contribute 3 percent of their salaries to their requirement.
Earlier this month, a circuit court judge ruled that the state’s 3-percent contribution plan was unconstitutional, potentially causing a $2 billion budget fiasco.
Gov. Rick Scott responded that he was sure the decision would be found Constitutional on appeal.
The First District Court of Appeals referred the case was directly to the Supreme Court, which accepted jurisdiction on Wednesday.
Oral arguments are expected to begin in September.
