Legislative Committee

The Board established a Legislative Committee in 2007 to direct and monitor RIPEA’s legislative effort. The primary focus of the Legislative Committee is to attempt to protect the purchasing power of PERF retirees by submitting legislation to the Indiana General Assembly that will provide increases in retirement income to maintain the retirees’ standard of living.

The Legislative Committee is also involved in efforts to protect and improve the retirement benefits for active members of PERF. This effort is concentrated on the benefit formula, vesting and the calculation of final average salary (F.A.S.).

Current members of the Legislative Committee are:

Craig Hartzer, Chairman
Roger Parent, Member
Al Logsdon, Member
Bruce Kimery, Member
Joe Loftus, Lobbyist
