House Bill 2086
House Bill 2086 is an interim committee bill from the Joint Committee on Pensions, Investments and Benefits, which would increase the state’s annual contribution cap from .6 percent (%) to 1.0 percent (%).
Unfortunately, House Bill 2086 was not “blessed” for the turnaround by an exempt committee and is considered, in its present form, a dead bill. Bills that fail to advance or are not otherwise “blessed” by an exempt committee in the Kansas House, such as House Appropriations, are dead after the turn-around date in the legislature, which typically falls in late-February. Because HB 2086 was not blessed, like HB 2311 (a bill Keeping the Kansas Promise opposes), it is considered dead, though it can be revived through other procedures, such as a gut-and-go.
