Pension Relief Passes House

Governor Matt Bevin’s pension-relief proposal has narrowly passed the state House after a more than three-hour debate as a midsummer special legislative session continues.The 52-46 vote Monday was a pivotal test for Bevin’s plan to assist regional universities and quasi-governmental entities strapped by surging retirement costs. Those agencies include public health departments, community mental health centers and domestic violence shelters. The measure now goes to the GOP dominated Senate.
