Gov. Dayton signs 2018 pension bill

Gov. Mark Dayton has signed the 2018 Omnibus Retirement Bill into law.

“That’s the last bill I’ll sign as governor of Minnesota and what a great way to end on,” Dayton said at the May 31 signing ceremony in the Capitol rotunda, which was packed with Minnesotans from all walks of public service.

The bill includes sustainability measures for all four of Minnesota’s public employee pension systems: the Teachers Retirement Association (TRA), the Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA), the Minnesota State Retirement System (MSRS), and the St. Paul Teachers Retirement Fund Association (SPTRFA).
