One of the most important responsibilities of the State Treasurer is to be a watchdog for money earned by Kentuckians. That includes protecting Kentucky retirees’ pensions.
I was proud to support Senate Bill 3 that passed the General Assembly and was signed into law by Governor Bevin earlier this year. That bill shines a light on legislator pensions by allowing the people of Kentucky to see how their tax dollars are being paid to retired legislators. This is critical information; Kentucky has one of the worst overall pension liabilities in the country.
