BATON ROUGE - Changes to state worker retirement plans proposed by Gov. Bobby Jindal could undergo changes today.

Sen. Elbert Guillory (D-Opelousas), who chairs the Senate Retirement Committee, said there are discussions to slowly introduce the age requirement depending on how long someone's been employed. The more years someone has worked for the state, the less the requirement would change if the bill is made law.

Opponents to the changes argue they violate the state's contracts with their employees.

The bill is intended to reduce the state's escalating state pension system costs. The committee will take up discussion on the measure at 1 p.m.
