Legislative Updates

​​​​​​​​The 2024 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly convened on January 2, 2024. This is a 60-day budget writing session. The legislature is scheduled to adjourn sine die on April 15.​​

​​​​​​​​2024 Regular Session - Day 60 - General Assembly Adjourns Sine Die

The 2024 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly adjourned sine die (a Latin phrase meaning "without a day" that is used to describe the official end of a legislative session) yesterday, April 15.

There were two items of interest on the Daily List yesterday. First, the Senate confirmed the appointment (or reappointment) of 3 Trustees for the Kentucky Retirement Systems Board of Trustees:

  1. Senate Resolution 309 (Confirm appointment of Mary G. Eaves to the KRS Board of Trustees for a term expiring June 21, 2027);
  2. Senate Resolution 310 (Confirm reappointment of Caswell Prewitt Lane to the KRS Board of Trustees for a term expiring June 17, 2027); and
  3. Senate Resolution 313 (Confirm reappointment of Pamela Fettig Thompson to the KRS Board of Trustees for a term expiring June 17, 2027). All three resolutions were introduced and adopted 38-0.

In addition, House Bill 354 (retiree health insurance reimbursements for school district employees) passed 37-0 yesterday and has been delivered to the Governor for his consideration.

On the Other Retirement-Related Legislation tracking list, Senate Resolution 324 was introduced and adopted 38-0; while House Bill 155 was recommitted to the Senate Judiciary committee and did not pass.


The Governor has 10 days, excluding Sundays, to consider the bills that were sent to him yesterday. After the 10-day period expires, or whenever we see what happens to the remaining bills on our tracking lists (whichever comes first), I'll send a summary of the retirement-related bills and resolutions that passed this Session. A more detailed article will be prepared for the next Pension Insights member/retiree newsletter scheduled for release in May 2024.

I hope these daily updates have been helpful to you this past Session. Unless the Governor calls a Special Session later this year, the General Assembly will not convene again until January 7, 2025 to begin the 30-day, 2025 Regular Session.​

Du​​ring legislative sessions, KPPA tracks proposed legislation of importance to the systems and their members a​​s the legislation moves through the process.
