Two bills of interest to state workers come up for key committee hearings next week:
Senate Bill 151, which implements six labor contracts reached negotiated with six unions by Gov. Jerry Brown, comes before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday.
Assembly Bill 873 is on the agenda for Tuesday's meeting of the Assembly Committee on Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security. The measure puts new post-state service limitations on board members and some staff at the CalPERS and CalSTRS.
Note: Our earlier estimate that AB 873 affects a combined 300 to 400 employees needs revision. The controller's office took a count after we asked, and SCO spokesman Jacob Roper says that "70 at PERS and 50 more at STRS" are in positions that the measure would affect.
