The Kay County Retired Educators Association met Monday on the campus of NOC Tonkawa.
Guest speaker was Rep. Ken Luttrell, who gave an update on what the Legislature did this year. Of particular interest to the group was the status of a cost-of-living raise. Though bill for a COLA was passed in the house by a vote of 98-3, no vote was taken in the Senate. It was instead referred for a cost analysis review. It has been 12 years since retirees from Oklahoma’s state pension systems have received a COLA.
