Referenda and certification.
Referenda and certification.—
The Governor, or an official of the state designated by the Governor for the purpose, is empowered to authorize and supervise the conduct of employee referenda prescribed by s. 218(d)(3) of the Social Security Act, on the question of whether service in positions covered by a retirement system established by the state or by a political subdivision thereof should be excluded from or included under an agreement under this chapter. The notice of referendum required by s. 218(d)(3)(C) of the Social Security Act to be given to employees shall contain or shall be accompanied by a statement, in such form and such detail as the agency or individual designated to supervise the referendum shall deem necessary and sufficient, to inform the employees of the rights which will accrue to them and their dependents and survivors, and the liabilities to which they will be subject, if their services are included under an agreement under this chapter.
Upon receiving evidence satisfactory to her or him that with respect to any such referendum the conditions specified in s. 218(d)(3) of the Social Security Act have been met, the Governor, or an official of the state designated by the Governor for the purpose, shall so certify to the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare.
