Description
The Senate Public Employment and Retirement Committee Records consist of 27 cubic feet and span the years 1971-2000. The records reflect the work of the committee in reviewing legislation pertaining to state and local non-school public employees and public employee retirement. They are comprised of bill files, hearing files, and notices, rolls, and logs.
Background
The Senate Public Employment and Retirement Committee was created by Senate Resolution 107 (1974). Prior to 1974, all matters pertaining to the subject of public employees and retirement were seen by the standing committee on Governmental Organization. The purpose of the newly created committee on Public Employment and Retirement was to oversee "all bills relating to state and local non-school public employees and public employee retirement." Most frequently these bills pertained to the structuring of retirement and disability benefits for retired state teachers, judges, law enforcement officers, and emergency personnel. Issues such as health benefits, vacation time, and sick leave credits for existing state employees were also addressed. The first day of existence for the Senate Public Employment and Retirement Committee was June 13, 1974, the day the new Senate Rules were read and adopted.
