The Maryland Senate passed SB540, creating a study of alternatives to the current defined benefit pension system. Any alternative that drains resources from the pension system will be harmful for the state’s economy, taxpayers and state employees. Your delegates need to hear from you that these priorities just don’t add up.
A bill that will positively impact state employees is the Payroll Recovery Act (SB1031). The House version of this bill passed the House of Delegates last night and is currently being heard in the Senate.
MPEC members lobbied state legislators on this issue on Monday, April 20.
