TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas House has rejected a measure that would extend out the time it would take to fully fund the states obligations to current and future retirees.
The House voted down the pension refinancing measure 87-36 on Thursday. Gov. Laura Kelly put forward the plan as part of her state budget proposal. Kelly contends that the current contribution levels arent affordable.
Reps. Kent Thompson, R-LaHarpe, and Kenneth Collins, R-Mulberry, were opposed.
