2009 House Bill 4194

Senate Roll Call 62: Passed

To end the post-retirement health care insurance coverage provided to future legislators (those first elected after Nov. 1, 2010), but not for any current legislators. Under current law, former legislators who have been in office for five years get full health coverage beginning at age 55. The bill is tie-barred to Senate Bill 132 (both must pass for either to go into law), which would also end post-retirement health benefits for future Supreme Court and Appeals Court judges, Governors, Lieutenant Governors, Secretaries of State, Attorney Generals, Auditor Generals, and State Court Administrators.
