Lawmakers Seek to Increase Retirement Benefits

February 18, 1999

Missouri Lawmakers are looking for more money - - for themselves. Kurt Silver has the story from Jefferson City.

Rep. Mary Hagan-Harrell sponsored a bill that would increase retirement benefits for lawmakers while reducing the eligibility requirements. If passed, lawmakers would see a 33 percent increase in monthly benefit and a 33 percent decrease in the amount of time served to be eligible for these benefits.

Hagan-Harrell also said the proposed changes would not apply to retired lawmakers.
