2013 Senate Bill 670: Revise pre-term limits legislative pension detail
  1. Introduced by Sen. Rick Jones (R) on November 7, 2013, to repeal a statutory earmark of a small portion of court fees to a legislative retirement system. Conventional pensions for legislators were ended after term limits imposed by a popular initiative went into effect in the 1990s, but many surviving members of pre-term limits legislatures still collect pension benefits. Current lawmakers get 401(k) contributions instead.
    • Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on November 7, 2013.
