If the Legislature amends the statutes governing the Law Enforcement Officers' and Fire Fighters' Retirement System, Plan II (LEOFF II), by reducing the retirement age from 58 years to 50 years, reducing the number of months of service from 60 months to 24 months in determining the final average salary, and requiring any increased costs to be borne by local taxing districts/employers, the State would not be required by RCW 43.135.060(1) to reimburse those local taxing districts.
