Introduced by Rep. Dian Slavens (D) on April 10, 2012, to end the post-retirement health care insurance benefits provided to legislators who were in office on or after Jan. 30, 2009 (which includes all current legislators). Under current law, former legislators who have served six years get full health benefits beginning at age 55.
Referred to the House Government Operations Committee on April 10, 2012.
Re: 2012 House Bill 5537 (End post-retirement health coverage for legislators ) by spencerid on September 11, 2012 I don't know what happened with our health care system. I believe when the system will be fair to everyone no matter if the person is poor or rich then we can talk about equity. Right? Last weekend I was at one of the dentists Nashua NH and I was surprised to see that the services prices was drastically changed due to the changes in the health care system.
Re: 2012 House Bill 5537 (End post-retirement health coverage for legislators ) by GH-UpNorth on April 24, 2012 Absolutely !! Requiring teachers and state employees to swallow erosion and/or elimination of their health care and pension benefits while failing to support this bill for legislators is the height of hypocrisy. Time to drop the golden parachutes... get a taste of the reality facing your constituents.

EXCELLENT proposal! What private or public sector employee qualifies for 100% health insurance coverage after only six years of the equivalent of part-time work? The next step is to significantly reduce the pension provision.
