Wyo. Workers Would Share Pension Hike Under Bill
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The latest proposal to boost contributions to the Wyoming’s state pension plan calls for employees and the government to split the cost.
The full Senate on Tuesday passed a bill requiring employees and the state to each pay 0.5 percent more into the fund over the next two years.
Earlier this session, the House passed the original version of House Bill 250, which required that the state cover the 1 percent increase on its own.
The Associated Press reports that the House will now be asked to accept the Senate’s changes. If it doesn’t, a conference committee will be formed to work out their differences.
