Less Government, Lower Taxes and More Freedom – 2014 Legislative Session Day 9

In the Appropriations Committee meeting today, we’re accepting testimony on two bills. House Bill 2407 restores provisions allowing retirees of the Public Employees’ Retirement System
(PERS) who return to work in positions covered by other Department of Retirement
Systems-administered plans to receive benefits for the first 867 hours of employment per year and applies the 867-hour return-to-work rules to PERS retirees only if hired into retirement benefits-eligible positions.

House Bill 2437 Clarifies that the Health Care Authority (HCA) may direct an employing state agency to make benefit eligibility determinations; clarifies HCA benefit eligibility for part-time and seasonal employees and registered domestic partners; provides a definition for "provider group" among entities that may participate in HCA insurance programs; provides coverage in HCA benefit plans for dependents up to age 26 in conformance with the federal Affordable Care Act; and provides eligibility in HCA-administered Medicare supplemental insurance policies to state registered domestic partners of emergency service personnel killed in the line of duty.

The Committee may also consider House Bills 1635, 2002, 2029, 2407, and 2437 for Executive Action.
