2009 House Bill 5030

Increase pensions for Adrian Training School employees

Introduced in the House

May 27, 2009

Introduced by Rep. Dudley Spade (D-57)

To give senior employees at the Adrian Training School juvenile justice facility an enhanced pension benefit. The facility is to be closed under a December, 2008 executive order budget cut. Under the bill, rather than getting laid off, employees whose age and years of employment equals 70 (such as a 50 year old with just 20 years on the job) could begin receiving a full pension immediately, and those whose age and years on the job equals 75 would get a 16.7 percent increase the cash portion of their post-retirement benefits.

Referred to the Committee on Government Operations
