2009 Senate Joint Resolution P: Give legislature authority on government employee benefit co-pays
  1. Introduced by Sen. Mark Jansen (R) on December 17, 2009, to place before voters in the next general election a Constitutional amendment that would give the legislature final authority over the employee/employer cost sharing allocation for all government employee health insurance fringe benefits (including that of state office holders). Provisions that allowed for lower employee cost sharing than permitted by the legislature would not be enforceable, whether they were established by the State Officers Compensation Commission, the Civil Service Commission or a union collective bargaining agreement.
    • Referred to the Senate Government Operations and Reform Committee on December 17, 2009.
    • Referred to the Senate Reforms, Restructuring and Reinventing Committee on January 26, 2010.
