State Employee Group Benefit Plans For Local Government
Health benefits are offered to state employees through the 'State Employees Group Benefits Act' (act), which is administered by the state personnel director. The bill authorizes the state personnel director, or a designee, to enter into an agreement with any local government to provide health benefits to employees of the local government through the group benefit plans offered to state employees pursuant to the act.
The bill specifies that a local government is not required to offer health benefits to its employees through the group benefit plans offered to state employees pursuant to the act.
