Florida AG Blasts Pension Fund Head

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — One of the state officials in charge of Florida’s pension fund is criticizing a decision by the fund chief to ask for nearly $11,000 to turn over public records.

Attorney General Pam Bondi on Tuesday told the executive director of the State Board of Administration that it was indefensible that he wanted to charge that much in order to produce records related to a $125 million investment.

Bondi is one of three state officials who act as trustees of Florida’s pension fund.

State Sen. Mike Fasano wants the state Senate to force the state board to turn over the information after he got an invoice from SBA executive director Ash Williams.

Williams on Tuesday tried to defend the cost, saying he has to follow state laws regarding confidentiality of investments.
