In this bill a public employees' insurance agency finance board was set up comprised of Sally Richardson, director of PEIA; Robert McGarrah, public policy director of the American Federa- tion of State, County, and Mu- nicipal Employees (AFSCME); Joe Badgley, a professor at West Virginia University at Parkers- burg; Diana Morris, administra- tor of employee benefits and re- tirement programs for McJunkin Corporation; and Emily Speller, a university professor and for- mer Worker's Compensation Commissioner. This board is responsible for creating a financial plan for the insurance agency for each fiscal year which includes plans for a benefit package. This proposal must be prepared by November 10. After this initial proposal is finished there will be two public hearings and then the plan must be finalized, approved and sub- mitted to the Legislature by De- cember 10. Employees will re- ceive notice of any changes in the proposal within 30 days of the implementation date, Janu- ary 1, 1991. I believe that the passage of this bill was important because now is the time to put the agency back on its feet. If the government had waited any longer there might not be a way for the agency to become fiscally stable. The Legislature also revised the state's retirement systems through the passage of House Bill 311. This bill creates a peg- manent Joint-leglslative commit- tee, the Joint Standing Commit- tee on Pensions and Retirement, which will meet throughout the year to study public retirement systems. During all legislative sessions, any bills related to this area will be studied by this com- mittee. Before referring the bill to the respective bodies for approval, the committee will have an actu- arial study on each Issue. Any action taken by the committee on a bill will be determined by the results of these studies. A Consolidated Public Retire- ment Board was created to ad- minister the Teacher Retirement System, the Public Employees Retirement System, the Death, Disability and Retirement Fund bT the Department of Public Safety, the Judges Retirement System, and the recently-created Teacher Defined 'Contribution Retirement System This board is comprised of the governor, the state auditor, and the secretary of administration, Also included on the board are four citizens who do not partici- pate in any of the retirement systems and four citizens who are representive of the above mentioned retirement systems. Another measure in the bill concerns retirees who return to work for a government agency or accept a government contract. Under these terms, a person may lose his or her early retire- paid less than $2,500. In other provisions, those per- sons who retired under the Teacher's Retirement System prior to July 12, 1981 and are not receiving a supplement beneP.t will now receive $18 for evex3 year of service. Those per- sons who retired under the Pub- lic Employees Retirement Sys- tem before 1981 will also receive a benefit of $6 for every year of service. All of these bills were very complex and, in some cases, changes in the various areas covered in the bills may not be noticeable right away. However, I believe that the Legislature passed bills that will make a dif- ference in the future of this state. This session will be the last until the regular legislative ses- sion begins January 9, 1991. Meanwhile, various lawmakers will be attending joint interim committee meetings to review government studies and plan proposed legislation for the up- coming session. In order to bring this area of the legislative proc- ess to the citizens of this state these meetings will be held in various cities throughout West Virginia The first of these meetings will be held in Parkersburg October 7 through 9, which I will attend to serve on the Mental Health Committee. During this time we will discuss the study of the De- partment of Health and Human Resources Public Mental Health Ih-ogram, the need for changes in the program and the ways and means for these changes. All findings, conclusions, and rec- ommendations will be reported to the 1991 Legislature along with proposed legislation to bring about the changes needed in the program. I am pleased to be serving on this committee because I believe that mental health is important to the overall well-being of an Individual, therefore it is impor- West Virginia School Osteopathic Medicine Cholesterol Screening Saturday, October 6 VA II 10:00 am till 2:00 pm The Last Payment OnYour First National Christmas Club.
