  • State appeals ruling on PA 75 and 3% healthcare contributions

    On July 19, 2016, the state filed a formal request to the Supreme Court to hear an appeal of the Court of Appeals (COA) ruling on PA 75 and the 3 percent healthcare contributions for public school employees. In June 2016, the COA ruled that PA 75 was unconstitutional and ordered the refund of contributions that had been deducted from public school employees pay during the period the statute was in effect (2010 to 2012). In the meantime, the contributions at issue are being held in an escrow account pending a final decision of whether they should be applied to the healthcare trust, along with other member and employer contributions, to provide investment funding for retiree healthcare.
