The State Administration and Veterans’ Affairs Interim Committee is meeting in Helena on June 8 to examine several public policy issues, including:
- Veteran suicides and prevention efforts in Montana.
- Campaign finance laws and updates about recent court cases regarding contribution limits.
- A status report about an information request made by a reporter to the Teachers’ Retirement System and the Montana Public Employees’ Retirement Administration. The reporter, James DeHaven of the Helena Independent Record, asked for several years of data about the retirement benefit amounts paid to retirees by name and agency.
Election laws and the committee’s preliminary bill draft to clean up provisions related to the passage of a general revision bill — House Bill 84 (2015) — will not be discussed until the committee’s next meeting on August 23.
The June 8 meeting is open to the public and begins at 9 a.m. in Room 102 of the Capitol.
