Bevin’s Legal Team Files Motion to Decide Full Constitutionality of Pension Reform Law

On Friday, June 29, 2018, Governor Matt Bevin’s legal team filed a motion urging the court to resolve whether the 2018 pension reform legislation, Senate Bill 151, violates the inviolable contract and the Contracts Clause of the Kentucky Constitution. The motion follows the lawsuit filed by Attorney General Andy Beshear attacking the pension reform bill and the June 20, 2018, opinion in Franklin Circuit Court, which invalidated SB 151 on two legislative-process issues but failed to address the more substantive issues of the care, including any impact the bill could have on the inviolable contract. The motion was filed to ensure that the constitutionally of Senate Bill 151 can be determined once and for all.
