Legislative Update - KY Pension Reform Update
Kentucky's legislature adjourned session on December 18th without passing a replacement pension law.
The original pension law signed by Gov. Matt Bevin earlier this year was struck down on the 13th by the state Supreme Court, deeming it unconstitutional. Gov. Bevin called a special session on the 17th but when lawmakers arrived they became concerned. The two bills being proposed had unexpected differences from the original law and they were unwilling to pass the revised version.
With less than 4 hour notice, advocacy groups said they scrambled to get members to the Capitol in time to protest the session, which was held at 8 pm. It would have been better, the groups said, had lawmakers waited until the 2019 General Assembly convened in three weeks so an open, deliberative process involving all interested parties could be used to craft a better pension bill.
We can be assured this topic will be at the forefront in 2019. Gov. Bevin has asserted pension crisis represents the single greatest threat to the long-term health of the Commonwealth and has declared pension reform the meaningful first step toward shoring it up.
