The Assembly Committee on State Affairs recommended passage on the following education-related bills this morning:

AB-670 Increasing Retirement Age (Felzkowski, Mary) Increasing the minimum retirement age under the Wisconsin Retirement System; decreasing the minimum break in service for annuitants in the Wisconsin Retirement System who are rehired by a participating employer, and allowing rehired annuitants to elect to not participate in the Wisconsin Retirement System. Am. 1 adopted, 8-5.   Passage as amended recommended, 8-6. (The SAA is opposed to this bill). 

AB-816 Holocaust Education (Plumer, Jon) Incorporating the Holocaust and other genocides into the state model social studies standards and requiring instruction on the Holocaust and other genocides. Passage recommended, 14-0.  (The SAA is opposed to this bill as it creates a new instructional mandate).

Stay tuned.  We will keep the membership informed of any developments on these bills.
