2012 House Bill 5725: Allow municipalities to revise employee pension systems
  1. Introduced by Rep. Peter MacGregor (R) on June 5, 2012, to allow a municipality to revoke or change its employee retirement plan or benefits with a majority vote of its governing body rather than a majority vote in a public election. The “accrued” pension benefits already earned by existing employees are guaranteed by the state constitution and would not be affected, but other post-employment benefits could be changed.
    • Referred to the House Appropriations Committee on June 5, 2012.
      • Reported in the House on September 27, 2012, with the recommendation that the substitute (H-2) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
