Sen. Katie Stine reviews Kentucky congressional week

Senator Katie Stine (R-Southgate) serves as the president pro-tem of the State Senate.  She represents the 24th District including Pendleton and Campbell counties.

In our first week back, the Senate passed several pieces of legislation that reflect our priorities.

Much has been said about the huge unfunded liability in our public employee pension system. In fact, Standard & Poor’s rating agency has downgraded our bond rating because of its condition. Senate Bill 2 is step one in addressing this enormous challenge. It is important to note that this bill makes no changes to teachers’ retirement, does not impact those currently employed or retired, and does not create a new tax on pension income of either private or public employees.
