MEA calls move to table school employee retirement changes ‘the right decision’

EAST LANSING — The Michigan Education Association is praising the Senate’s decision to table costly legislation that would have forced all new school employees into a defined contribution, 401(k)-style retirement plan.

“Tabling this discussion rather than ramming this legislation through is the right decision,” said MEA President Steven Cook. “Education leaders and fiscal experts agree that dismantling the school employee retirement system would have been bad for school employees, parents, kids and taxpayers.”
