WRS Retirement Age/Return-to-Work Bills to Receive Public Hearings

By John Forester | January 28, 2020

Companion bills Assembly Bill 670 and Senate Bill 612, relating to increasing the minimum WRS retirement age and return-to-work provisions for WRS annuitants, will receive public hearings concurrently in both the Senate Committee on Government Operations, Technology and Consumer Protection and the Assembly Committee on State Affairs on Wednesday, January 29th.  The hearing notices are linked below.  The Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB) supports this legislation.  SAA opposes it.  You might recall a previous blog post in which the SAA detailed the concerns about the bill raised by the SAA Legislative Committee.
