To The Daily Sun,
"This bill requires premium contribution amounts for retiree health benefits (from) retired state employees who are Medicare eligible."
This is the first line of the amended analysis to the substitute amendment to HB-1591 that has passed the House and this week will be acted on by the Senate Finance Committee.
There has already been an increase in state retirees' medication co-pays, and for the first time, the two houses of our Legislature are working together to fill a $5 million gap in funding by directly raiding your 80-year-old neighbor's state employee pension.
Please contact your senator and state representative today. Ask them to kill this move that will harm the helpless.
