RE: Application of Chapter 74-139 -- Public ERaloyer
Paying Health Insurance

You asked for my opinion on whether the above law ~ rmits the District
to pay for health insurance. My investigation revw ls that the law
does not apply to the District for it is not a govw mental unit with-
in the intent of the law. Thus, the above chapter loes not apply to
the District. Enclosed is a copy of Chapter 74-13: for your informa-
tion. The District in section 112 is generally re erred to as a
district or special taxing entity and not as a gov mental unit.

As a matter of information, I believe the District pursuant to Section
373.079(4) has the inherent authority to agree to: --y for its employee
insurance as part of its powers to determine the t as and conditions
of employment of those it hires. The one item of- ancern to me is
whether our adopted budgets show sufficient infonr tion to cover the
costs of assuming the expense of said insurance at .advise the public
that the tax millage will cover said expense.
