Senate Considering MPSERS Changes - Tell Them Not During Lame Duck

Bob Kefgen's picture

Senate action on MPSERS seems imminent. The discussion is currently centered on closing out the MPSERS system for new hires only and transitioning these employees into a 401(k) style plan. Regardless, the potential for unintended consequences is high when a bill like this moves hastily.

Michigan's public school employee retirement system is complex. Any changes need to be carefully considered lest they raise costs for schools, impact benefits for current employees, or hurt the future of the education profession. Lame Duck is NOT the time to make sweeping changes.
