HB 1055 in Senate Rules – Deadline Looming

HB 1055 in Senate Rules – Deadline Looming

Contact your Senator NOW and ask for their help.

If you haven’t seen or read any of the lead-up information about HB-1055, you can view it at These next few days are CRITICAL!  If we don’t get the bill pulled from the Senate Rules and passed by the Senate by Wednesday, April 12th at 5 pm the bill dies. We are so close, lets get this done! We have asked for your help before, which has gotten us to this critical juncture.  This bill passed unanimously out of the House of Representatives on March 6th, passed Senate Ways and Means on March 13th and has strong support from both sides of the aisle as well as our other public safety partners.  But it is stalled, and we need your help now.

  1. Call and leave a message for your Reps.  It won’t take but a minute and a phone call can make the difference. 

Thank you for your help!  Let’s get our PSTs into the appropriate retirement system and allow them to retire from their chosen profession.
