Republican Leader Targets Teacher Pension & Health Care
mLive.com reports that Senate Majority Leader Ken Sikkema says he will push teacher pension and health care reform next year as he finishes his 20-year legislative career. Earlier this month, the Senate voted to approve changes in teacher health care, encouraging districts to join pools for employee health insurance and creating a statewide catastrophic loss claims pool. The legislation was tied to teacher pension reform in the House but failed to gather the necessary votes.
