Yesterday (April 21) the Governor signed both KPERS policy bills that were passed prior to first adjournment: HB 2243 and HB 2405. 

HB 2243 contains the provisions of:
  • HB 2243 (Experience study schedule)
  • SB 86 (Technical changes)
  • HB 2064 (DROP extension)
  • SB 265 (D&D moratorium)
HB 2243 is effective on publication in the statute book (July 1). 

HB 2405 authorizes the sale of $500 million in pension funding bonds with a maximum interest rate of 4.3%.

HB 2405 is effective on publication in the Kansas Register, which would be April 29 if the information is submitted the Secretary of State by the Governor's office today. If it is not submitted by the deadline, then it would likely be effective May 6.
