Governor Inslee signs HB 1055

Governor Inslee signs House Bill No. 1055, May 1, 2023. Relating to public safety employees’ retirement plan membership for public safety telecommunicators. Primary Sponsor: Rep. Stokesbary

The Governor signed HB-1055 into law on May 1st, 2023 and a few of us were lucky enough to attend the signing ceremony.

So, What’s next? According to the bill, things take effect June 1, 2024. So between now and then, we will work with the Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) to learn the process and find ways to provide you with information so you can make an informed decision. Keep current by checking our website, following the Chapter’s social media accounts, and attending Chapter meetings.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this meaningful and important change happen.
What a wild and thrilling ride! ~ Katy
