Here is the roll call vote for HB 1447 – If you want to know how your senator voted. (Clayborne voted no)
This bill imposes pension reductions on the General Assembly Retirement System and the State Employee Retirement System. System participants would have to choose between (1) reduced COLA’s and having salary increases apply to their pensions along with access to retiree health insurance; or (2) existing COLA but no pensionable salary increases and no access to retiree health insurance.
The GA will likely attempt to use this bill as a model to reduce all of our benefits eventually.
