Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 429 -- Reemployment of Retired Teachers and Nonteacher School

Sponsor:  Kelly (36)

This bill permits any school district with a self-determined
shortage of teachers to allow retired teachers from any of the
public school retirement systems to teach full-time for up to 2
years without loss of retirement benefits.  The number of
persons so employed is limited to the greater of 10% of the
total teacher staff or 5 persons.  The provisions of the bill
are contingent upon the implementation of rules that assure the
provision's cost-neutrality and actuarial soundness of the
systems.  All necessary costs are to be paid by the hiring
district and must not exceed statutory cost limits.  The bill
also permits any district to reemploy retirees receiving
benefits from the nonteacher system for 2 years without loss of
pension benefits.

The bill contains an emergency clause.
