RPEN is currently tracking 12 of the 650 BDR's. Included are BDR's 184 and 185, from Reno State Assemblyman Randy Kirner. 184 seeks to create an interim task force to examine alternatives to the current Public Employees' Retirement System. BDR 185 seeks to revise provisions governing PERS. During the 2013 session, Assemblyman Kirner also sought to introduce a new hybrid pension plan for all new state government employees, however that bill never received a hearing.

Another BDR RPEN is watching is BDR 566, which comes from newly elected Assemblyman PK O'Neill of Carson City and seeks to revise provisions governing crimes committed against older and vulnerable persons. Once the session is underway RPEN will be well represented in Carson City by our Legislative Advocate Marlene Lockard and Executive Director Marty Bibb.

Check back to our web site periodically during the session for Legislative Updates that will be posted here.
