Although this session fired off with rumors and innuendos about the drastic changes to the Oklahoma Police Pension and Retirement System (OPPRS), it fizzled out at the end as no benefit or contribution changes were enacted. The one bill we were closely watching was HB 2319. That legislation would have increased the contribution rate of the member from 8% to 9%, increased the contribu-tion rate of the municipalities from 13% to 14%, and increased the insurance premium allocation from 14% to 15%. According to the author of the bill, Representative Randy McDaniel, this would have been a “shared sacrifice” among the members, municipalities, and the State of Oklahoma. However, the Oklahoma Municipal League citing that they weren’t included in negotia-tions on this legislation, effectively stripped the bill of that language. As it stands today the contribution rate remains the same as last year. Please rest assured that the staff and board of trustees will continue to fulfill their duties in a manner that will protect the OPPRS and serve you, the mem-ber, of the Oklahoma Police Pension and Retirement System. On behalf of myself and the staff of the Oklahoma Police Pension and Re-tirement System, please have a safe and fun filled summer.
