Senate Roll Call 503 on
2015 Senate Bill 279: Ban public school/union pension spiking scheme

Amendment offered by Sen. David Knezek (D) on November 10, 2015
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.
The amendment failed 12 to 24 in the Senate on November 10, 2015.
