House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: February 6, 2019 03:23 PM
From: Representative Frank A. Farry
To: All House members
Subject: Health Care Coverage Contribution (Prior HB 1217)
As once again we are heading into a financially crunched budget, I feel it is important that we are willing to contribute our share towards the cost of our health care benefits.

Therefore, I am reintroducing House Bill 1217 from last session that would require Members to contribute 5 percent of the annual cost of their health care premium through monthly payroll deductions. The plan calls for a 3 percent increase in deductions each term for the next five terms. At the end of the fifth term, Members would be responsible for 20 percent of the cost of their health care premium. If a Member's current contribution of 1 percent of salary is greater than their percentage of premium, the contribution would be at the higher rate.

Thank you, and I welcome your support of this legislation.

Introduced as HB1073
