We would like to continue the post-legislative coverage of the 88th General Assembly’s legislation that will have an impact on education in Arkansas. There were quite a few bills that pertained to the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System. These bills are for the most part pretty specific and often quite technical. Because of that, we thought it would be a good idea to direct you to the expert on Arkansas Teacher Retirement rather than try to summarize all of these bills.
George Hopkins, executive director of ARTRS, did a great job providing summaries to teachers and leaders throughout the session providing Director Updates to constituents about legislation that would impact the teacher retirement systems. Furthermore, ARTRS has provided a comprehensive summary of each of the bills passed into law on their website.
