“State Employee Defined Contribution
Pension Plan Passes Senate”

As expected, and along party lines, the Oklahoma Senate on Tuesday approved HB 2630, by Rick Brinkley (R, Owasso) of the Senate and Randy McDaniel (R, Edmond) of the House. The vote was 34-9, with all affirmative votes coming from Republicans. HB 2630 would establish a defined contribution retirement plan for state employees beginning work for the state on or after November 1, 2015. The bill previously passed the House on a closer vote of 57-42, with the title off the bill.

“Notice of Corrections to Spring, 2014 Issue of OREA News Bulletin”
April 7, 2014

OREA members are hereby advised of two errors in the spring issue of the OREA News Bulletin, which should arrive in the mailboxes of all members this week.

#1 – On page 1, left-hand column, the newsletter states that $14 discount tickets to the 62nd OREA Annual State Convention and meeting of the House of Delegates will be available until Friday, April 11, becoming $20 thereafter. Please note that members utilizing the ticket order form on page 3 of the newsletter will receive the $14 ticket rate until Friday, April 25. This rate will be good also for tickets ordered via telephone when calling Kerry Hughes at (405) 525-2230 or (800) 310-2230 toll free.

#2 – The article “Last Call for Delegates,” on page 8 of the newsletter contains an incorrect reference to the location of the 2014 meeting of the OREA House of Delegates. The article should say that the House of Delegates will meet in Midwest City, OK on Thursday, May 8, at 1:45 p.m.

We apologize for the errors. Please call OREA at (405) 525-2230 or (800) 310-2230 for any further clarification. See you May 7-8 at the 62nd OREA Annual State Convention and meeting of the House of Delegates at the Reed Center/Sheraton Hotel, 5800 Will Rogers Road, Midwest City (one block north of I-40 at Sooner Road exit)!
