KTRS HB 4 Update
March 30, 2015
The House approved HB 4 which was a $3.3 billion in bonds, the Senate called that much debt too risky and proposed a task force to study the issue. On the last day of the session the Chambers negotiated HB 4 until the final hours of the session. The Senate offered to put $50 million into KTRS immediately and then do more planning. This was refused by the House. However they could not reach an agreement. Then HB 47 was passed and sent to the Governor and was signed. This bill added KTRS to the responsibilities of the Pension Oversight Board. Up until this time, the Oversight Board had no authority to look at or regulate KTRS. HB 4 and the Senate version are now dead and come January, 2016 both House and Senate will start over to find a solution for KTRS shortfall.
