2017 Regular Session
Following a monumental year for the Teachers’ Retirement System, when the General Assembly and Gov. Matt Bevin delivered a budget with $973 million in additional funding for teacher pensions, the 2017 30-day session is now complete. Here are some bills of note that became law:
- SB 2 — adds two gubernatorially appointed and Senate-confirmed trustees to the Board of Trustees; specifies that investment fee and commission reporting must include profit sharing, carried interest and partnership incentives; places TRS under the Model Procurement Code regarding contracts
- HB 471 — Allows TRS to pay a dependent subsidy for insurance for under-65 retirees in the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018
A list of all pension-related bills contained on the website of the Legislative Record is updated at the completion of each day of a session.
