      FOR ALL ACTIVE AND RETIREE MEMBERS OF PERS - ACT NOW!  

      CALL ALERT!!!

      House Bill 1590 will be taken up by the Senate’s Government Committee tomorrow, Tuesday, April 2 at 4:00 p.m. The House of Representatives State Affairs Committee is set to meet on April 2 at 3:00 p.m. and will most likely take up Senate Bill 2799, which is rumored to be changed to negatively affect PERS retirees, active, and/or future members' benefits, and the PERS Board composition.

      Please call, text, or email your Senators and Representatives tonight or early tomorrow morning and let them know to keep your elected representatives on the PERS Board and make sure that all PERS Board members are members of PERS! If they are members of PERS, they will have a vested interest in keeping all of our benefits both short and long-term.

      Please also tell them that they should fund the PERS System for the benefits that were promised by the Legislature in the late 1990’s. We must act fast and make sure they support keeping our PERS system financially healthy!

      The Senate meeting can be viewed at 4:00 pm.  Here is the following link:https://www.youtube.com/@MississippiLegislature/streams.

      The House Bill is located at:
      https://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/documents/2024/pdf/HB/1500-1599/HB1590PS.pdf

      The PERS Board has issued a Statement Opposing House Bill 1590.  
       

      Please email and call your Senate Government Structure Committee on Monday morning.  Ask them respectfully to OPPOSE HB 1590 and protect PERS employees and retirees.
