Zurik: SPRB attorney says legal action over Edmonson retirement not needed

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 21:34 //

An attorney for the State Police Retirement Board says that controversial amendment to give the state police head a huge retirement bump is unconstitutional - but he says the board should not sue over it.

Hammond attorney C.B. Forgotston got a copy of the attorney's recommendations Thursday night and shared it with FOX 8 News and others.

The amendment would raise the retirement of State Police Col. Mike Edmonson and one other person.

Forgotston thinks Edmonson could collect an additional 50-thousand dollars a year in retirement.

Edmonson has said he will not accept the extra money. However, there is no guarantee that he will not claim the money later.

Lawmakers passed this amendment on the last day of the session. But they never discussed it publicly, and most lawmakers have said they really did not know what they were voting for.
