Group 4 Bill in Study: Ask Lawmakers to Release It

The Joint Committee on Public Service voted last week to refer House Bill 2302, to a study. The bill would move all NAGE Trial Court members into pension classification Group 4. The committee’s vote effectively kills the bill for the rest of the legislative session, which ends July 31.

The bill can be revived this session. Public Service Committee Chairman Aaron Michlewitz has to request that the House Rules Committee release it from study. The bill has been reported favorably several times in past years, so there should be no reason to do any differently this time.

Please call Chairman Michlewitz and ask him to recall House Bill 2302 from study and report it favorably. Then call the other members of the Public Service Committee (contact information below) and ask them to urge Chairman Michlewitz to recall HB 2302 and report it favorably. Your Trial Court executive board members are calling the committee members as you are receiving this fax. We need everyone to call to move this bill!
