Under the retirement plan currently, the contribution rate for both State Patrol members and the state is 16.26% of a member’s monthly compensation.

LB196, sponsored by Lincoln Sen. Eliot Bostar, reduces the contribution rate for patrol members to 10% and increases the state contribution rate to 24%.

The bill also extends the deadline to file a claim under the state’s In the Line of Duty Compensation Act from one year to three years after the date of death and provides for review of a denied claim by the Lancaster County District Court.

LB196 passed on a 45-0 vote and takes effect immediately.
