2013 Senate Bill 175

Senate Roll Call 207: Passed

To reverse a <A href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2010-HB-6271">2010 reform</A> that eliminated "defined benefit" pensions for future Michigan National Guard commanders and their assistants, and instead provided 401k benefits. The 2010 reform was adopted following reports of these "Adjutant Generals" being granted generous state pensions based on limited state service ($78,000 to $133,000 for 1.5 years to 13 years service). The bill would also revise and update many details in the law that establishes the Michigan National Guard’s organization, command, more.
