Kudos to Marge Postel for accepting the challenge to be on the Div. 63 Legislative Committee. Marge and Pat Kallen, incoming Chair, will be a remarkable team working for the betterment of teacher retirement.
Pat and Marge will be watchdogs for your pension system.
Thank you for giving both of them your full support.You have garnered over 1500 signatures for repeal of GPO and WEP. The goal was 1100, double our membership. You may still sign and circulate GPO/WEP petitions. The deadline was extended to June 1, 2004.
Hats off and standing ovation to you!!
These petitions will be presented to our local Congressmen at a future date.
Little movement has occurred in Washington with HR 594. As of early May, 295 Congressmen (up from 282) had signed HR 594 as co-sponsors.
More information after Convention.
