Judge Phillip Shepherd struck down Kentucky’s controversial new public pension law Wednesday and permanently enjoined Gov. Matt Bevin from implementing it. This law would have removed pensions for our teachers, and require teachers to work longer before becoming eligible for retirement.
But our work is not done yet. Republicans are are certain to appeal the decision, and we must make our voices heard if and when they do. Let your Representative know that Kentucky teachers deserve their pensions, and that we will continue fighting should they try to take them away.
