Governor Dayton vetoes pension bill; TRA pensions are unchanged

 

After regular and special legislative sessions, Governor Mark Dayton vetoed
 toxic pension bill. The Legislative Commission Pensions and Retirement  (LCPR) released their 2017 Pension bill with only two weeks left in the regular legislative session.  TRA sustainability package of measures was removed from the bill which was called ‘toxic’ by pension lobbyists.

 

The Governor's veto meant that all sustainability measures and routine administrative provisions for TRA and the other public employee pensions failed to become law
and current TRA pensions remain unchanged.
