Our lobbyist, Karoub Associates, has further updated us that the Snyder Administration is working on legislative language to eliminate retiree health care and replace it with a voucher of an undetermined amount. Indications are that they are drafting this so it will impact both current/future retirees and actives. There is no legislative language available at this point.
The House Republicans have apparently set aside their desire to attack Defined Benefit pensions for now and join with Governor Snyder to focus on retiree health care.
Once again, we are continuing to make our voice heard in Lansing through our lobbyist and MAPO and urge you to continue to contact them with regard to this issue. We have previously posted the contact list for your legislators.
We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
