MISSISSIPPI CAREER FIREFIGHTERS CALL TO ACTION!!!!
Updated On: Feb 06, 2023
VOTE "NO" TO HOUSE BILL 605
Call your Mississippi House of Representatives NOW! Vote "No" on House Bill 605
If voted into law, this bill would allow the legislature to have veto power over the PERS Board. It would greatly hinder the PERS Board's ability to make fiscally responsible decisions for the system and allow the legislature to tie the Board's hands when making contribution increases.
This bill affects ACTIVE members just as much as it would retired members!
We cannot overstate how dangerous this would be for the health of the PERS retirement system. We ask you to call your legislators and let them know that, as a PERS member, you do NOT support this bill!
NOTE: The legislature already has representation on the PERS Board and this member is present when votes occur. The Legislature is completely aware of any decisions made in PERS Meetings!
Please share this with your friends and neighbors and encourage them to call as well!
