Legislative Affairs

While the Missouri legislature is in session (January - May), the PSRS/PEERS Board of Trustees and staff closely monitor any proposed legislation regarding retirement and education. We work with Missouri education associations and other Missouri retirement systems to ensure the best interests of our members are served.

Close of 98th Missouri Legislative Session

The second 98th Regular Session of the Missouri Legislature officially ended as of Friday, May 13th at 6:00 p.m. We are happy to report there was no legislation passed that had a negative impact on the Public School and Education Employee Retirement Systems of Missouri. This effort was accomplished by the active involvement of numerous educational associations, retired and active teachers contacting their respective legislators and our legislative team who spent many hours walking the floors of the Capitol and monitoring numerous committee hearings and floor debate. 

A detailed report of the 98th Missouri Legislative Session will be presented at the upcoming June Board Meeting.  If you have any questions regarding the status of particular legislation, please feel free to contact Maria Walden, Director of Legislation and Policy at 573-638-1084.
