Educators encourage Senate to accept House version of PERA bill

The State House of Representatives passed SB-200 on third reading, May 1, with bipartisan support. CEA supports the bill that passed out of the House.

Educators now support PERA bill after amendments

The House Finance Committee passed an amended Senate Bill 200, April 16, to help reform PERA on a 10-3 vote. The bill now meets the guiding principles adopted by the Colorado Education Association Board of Directors in December to maintain the financial stability of members’ retirement funds through a defined benefit program.
