OPEA Scores Win for Retirees

The Oklahoma Senate has voted on SB 1637, providing a 4 percent COLA for retirees this year, and a 2 percent COLA in following years.

“This is tremendous news for our state’s retirees,” said OPEA Executive Sterling Zearley from the Capitol. “We have been working with Senator Aldridge on this bill, and thank him for his support.”

The bill now goes to the House, where it will be carried by Representatives Lisa Billy and Wes Hilliard. OPEA urges its members to contact the offices of Billy and Hilliard and thank them for their support.
