2010 Senate Bill 1227

House Roll Call 154: Passed

To increase school employee contribution to their post-retirement benefits by 3 percent, and use the money to pay for retiree health care benefits, rather than bolster the underfunded pension fund or reduce school district contributions (as passed by the Senate). It would also increase by 13.3 percent the cash pension benefits of certain school employees who retire by July 1 (twice the amount the governor proposed); force all charter school employees into the conventional schools' traditional pension system; and allow some "retired" teachers to collect a pension while continuing to work. Finally, a slightly less generous system for new hires proposed by the Governor is not included in the House version.
