On May 15, President Hogan and President-designate Easter sent a Legislative Update to members of the University community. This update discusses the University's advocacy efforts in light of numerous issues before the State Legislature.
One such issue is SB1313, which passed both houses and will be sent to the Governor. SB1313 modifies the premium payments for retiree healthcare insurance, allowing the Director of CMS to set the premiums that are paid. CMS posted a letter referenced during the debates in the House and the Senate for more information about this bill. Currently, no specific costs or formula are available. This information will be updated as it becomes available.
