Bills address definition of veteran when determining eligibility for plan membership

SB 6377, Sen. Judy Warnick (R-Ellensburg) and HB 2701, Rep. Steve Bergquist (D-Kent) amend the definition of veteran for purposes of pension service credit. The bills are requested legislation from the Law Enforcement Officers’ and Fire Fighters’ Plan 2 (LEOFF 2) Retirement Board. The expanded definition is meant to include service that would otherwise have qualified for a badge or medal but was not issued.

The hearing for SB 6377 is Friday, February 2 in the Senate State Government, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee at 8 am. HB 2701 was heard on Wednesday, January 24 in the House Community Development, Housing & Tribal Affairs Committee.

AWC is monitoring the bill to determine the fiscal impact to the LEOFF 2 system.
