It is the intention of the Legislature to allow legislative bodies to validate or approve any prior, existing, or future payments or claims resulting from insurance or health benefits or health and welfare given their officers and employees and their dependents.
The purpose of the amendments to Section 53200 and 53205.1 enacted at the 1972 Regular Session and the 1973-74 Regular Session of the Legislature is to make it clear that the Legislature intended that legislative bodies be able to pay for insurance or health benefits or health and welfare benefits including, but not limited to, medical, dental, life, legal expense, and income protection insurance or benefits, for their officers and employees and their dependents under the provisions of Section 53205 and 53205.1.
