Representative Linda Belcher Files Amendment to Reverse Public-Pension Law
April 16, 2018
Representative Linda Belcher has filed an amendment that would give the General Assembly a chance to reverse Senate Bill 151 before concluding the legislative session. The amendment, attached to Senate Bill 113, would completely remove the enacted language of Senate Bill 151, the public-pension bill that many also call the sewage bill because that was the original subject matter. Representative Belcher said they hope Republications will show their support for government workers, educators and first responders by calling Senate Bill 113 so they amendment can be acted on. She and House Democratic Leader Rocky Adkins said that if the amendment is not approved, they would seek to have the law retroactively overturned when the 2019 Regular Session begins.
