2012 Legislative Update

ERB's Plan Design Change Proposal, SB 150, made significant progress in the 2012 NM Legislative Session; however, it stalled in the House Labor & Human Resources Committee.

Although SB 150 didn't pass this year, the ERB Board and Staff will continue to make efforts to improve the fund.

The ERB Board and Staff wish to extend our gratitude to our members and others who provided input and support during the Plan Design Change Proposal process. We hope to see continued support when the issue is revisited this spring.
