A bill which will increase the minimum retirement age of Louisiana state employees has moved closer to becoming a law.

Louisiana House Bill 38, sponsored by State Rep. Kevin Pearson (R) of Slidell, moved to the Senate floor this week after passing through the house by a vote of 91-3.

The legislation calls for moving the retirement age to 62 years of age, after five years of service. The current age of retirement for state employees is age 60.

If passed, HB38 would have the most direct effect on public school teachers and public employees with less than five years on the job.

The bill was passed by a vote of 37-0 this week, and ordered returned to the House.
