JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell on Thursday said a House Finance Committee proposal to address the teachers’ retirement system is “immoral” and shifts the obligation to future generations.
Parnell said he wants the proposal removed from his education bill, calling them two very separate issues. The committee added the retirement piece to its rewrite of the bill, HB278. A proposed amendment to pull out that issue failed on a 5-5 committee vote Wednesday.
The bill is scheduled for a vote on the House floor Friday. If approved, it would then go to the Senate.
