BackDROP legislation

Posted on
I heard a rumor that the Legislature is talking about eliminating the BackDROP to encourage employees to retire earlier and eliminate FTE's/reduce payroll for state agencies. I haven't seen any bills filed to eliminate BackDROP, but I'm concerned about this, as I've just started into BackDROP and don't want to lose that option. What information do you have on this possibility?
This perhaps is the most common rumor we hear every year. While the legislature could choose to modify or eliminate the BackDROP option, there has been no legislation introduced to do either this session and, to our knowledge, it is not being discussed as a possibility. If any such legislation were introduced, we would certainly notify our members to be sure they were informed. Print Friendly and PDF
