2015 Senate Bill 279

Senate Roll Call 503: The amendment was not adopted

To require the legislature to appropriate extra money to the (underfunded) school employee pension system to cover the pension fund contributions that would not be made if these union officials were no longer considered school employees. Defenders of this practice contend that the pension fund would suffer, but independent pension experts believe this would be overcome by relieving the state of paying pension expenses that are not covered by district contributions.
