LSP retirement board to discuss pension hike
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana State Police Retirement System Board of Trustees announced a public meeting to discuss the findings of a report by attorneys on the controversial passage of a pension hike for certain retirees.
The system board's response comes after political maneuvering to create a state law that will give two state troopers thousand of dollars more into their retirement plan attracted media attention.
Active and retired troopers called on the system board Wednesday to investigate the proposal, which some believe was done in secret.
Attorneys hired by the system board with experience in constitutional and pension law will investigate the amendments from the last legislative session and will disclose the findings to the board at the meeting.
The retirement system board says it will not take a position on the matter until the report has been presented.
The meeting will be held at 3 p.m. on Sept. 4 at the LSPRS office located at 9224 Jefferson Highway.
