Louisiana Will Have to Defend Changes in Retirement Plan in Court
Description: The Jindal administration will apparently have to defend in court changes in the state employee retirement system that were approved during the last legislative session. The Retired State Employees Association of Louisiana filed suit challenging the establishment of a 401(k) program for new hires. The Jindal administration asked District Judge William Morvant to dismiss suit, saying it doesn't have any legal merit. The judge apparently disagrees with the attorneys for the state.
The plaintiffs in the lawsuit say the legislation mandating the 401 (k) program did not get the two-thirds vote required in the legislature.
Just last Friday, State Judge Tim Kelley ruled against the Jindal administration's voucher plan for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
