center_img State Rep. Gary Glenn today voted in favor of legislation to protect public services and the retirement benefits for police, firefighters and other local government employees in Michigan.The reforms emphasize proper reporting from local governments to pinpoint ones that may be in financial trouble due to underfunded retirement plans. The legislation mirrors recommendations from a task force assembled earlier this year by Gov. Rick Snyder.“Our first responders put their safety on the line every single day to make sure the rest of us are safe,” Glenn, of Williams Township, said after the legislation was approved in the Michigan House. “We are taking important steps with this legislation to help ensure the benefits that have been promised to police and firefighters are available when they enter their well-deserved retirement.”last_img
