CONCORD – Today, the Senate voted to table SB 119, Senator Kevin Cavanaugh’s (D-Manchester) bill relative to the ordinary death benefit in the retirement system. By tabling the bill the Senate will be able to continue the conversation around the legislation.
After the vote, prime sponsor Senator Kevin Cavanaugh (D-Manchester) issued the following statement:
“The families of our lost police officers, firefighters, and other essential workers should not be left behind due to a paperwork issue. SB 119 does not create a new benefit, but rather exposes the Retirement System for making money off of our lost public servants and their families by fixing a simple but critical issue. I look forward to our continued efforts to support our essential workers and their families.”
