At the Government Modernization Committee meeting today, SB 190 passed without the section to reduce the state employee benefit allowance. Representative Murphey decided to accept an OPEA amendment by Representative Terrill to remove the benefit allowance section. This was after Representatives Trebilcock, Stiles, Terrill, Hilliard, Morissette, Scott, and Walker said they wanted to support their state employees would oppose the bill if the benefit allowance section was not removed. Thanks to all the OPEA members who called to save the benefit allowance and the legislators who stood up for their state employees.
