Legislative Update: House begins budget deliberations

SEANC in the News Update Contact Info Calendar of Events The Reporter

After releasing its proposed 2014-15 spending plan late last Wednesday night, the Senate wasted no time approving its $21.2 billion budget on a largely party line vote shortly after midnight Saturday. Upon receiving the budget, the chairmen and vice chairmen of the House Appropriations Committee spent the weekend and into Monday in their own budget discussions. Then, in contrast to the Senate, they convened the appropriations subcommittees to begin work on their proposals. That work has continued throughout the week and is expected to wrap up next week.

In the meantime, SEANC lobbyists and members are continuing to stay in close contact with representatives, urging them to value North Carolina’s vital public services and the people who provide them. "At the end of the day," SEANC Executive Director Cope said in an interview with TWC-News Capital Tonight, a budget is "where you put your priorities. I would hope they would value public services." Elsewhere in the General Assembly, SEANC has continued to advocate for the priorities of state employees and retirees while working on bills regarding pension transparency and vision discounts.

State Health Plan approves coverage for key autism treatment Meeting last Friday, May 30, the State Health Plan Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve adding Applied Behavior Analysis coverage for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This decision, one that SEANC has long advocated for, was applauded by autism support groups and state employees and retirees with autistic children across the state. The coverage, as currently designed, applies when the member is younger than age 26, has an ASD diagnosis by a licensed physician or doctoral level clinical psychologist and the mental health care manager determines the treatment medically necessary. It is available only in-network, is limited to a maximum of $36,000 per benefit year and is subject to copay, deductible and coinsurance as applicable. But not everything the SHP board did was as positive. The board also re-upped the punitive smoking cessation, primary care physician and health assessment wellness surcharges for the 80/20 and consumer driven health plans for 2015. A report by the SHP's private consulting firm, The Segal Company, also brought up the possibility of adding those wellness surcharges to the 70/30 plan and the potential for premium increases beginning in 2016, despite a report showing the plan has a trendline of overestimating its costs. SEANC will continue to advocate against the punitive surcharges and any unnecessary premium increases. At the meeting, Charles Johnson, an SHP board member and past SEANC president, voiced displeasure with Treasurer Janet Cowell's unilateral decision to offer the General Assembly the $22 million in savings this year. That money that could have been used to lower premiums for all state employees but is being used for teacher raises in the Senate budget.

Speaking to TWC News' Capital Tonight on Monday, SEANC Executive Director Dana Cope said that both the Senate and Gov. Pat McCrory were playing a “smoke and mirrors game� with the employee pay raise proposal. He also said that while state employees and retirees are concerned about their pay raises, they are "most concerned with the quality of public service degrading" because of the continued unwillingness of the General Assembly to "take care of the public resources" as lawmakers continue to push for privatization in areas of the departments of Public Safety and Transportation, and in the management of Medicaid. SEANC also spoke out in the media, calling the House's anti-pension spiking bill 'window dressing' and explaining that a bill to eliminate vision discounts would hurt state employees. And finally, SEANC's decision to allow student athletes to join as members has continued to gain attention, including from N.C. State's The Technician.

Legislative Update: N.C. House budget includes higher pay raise, COLA & bonus paid leave The N.C. House passed its version of a 2014-15 spending plan this morning. The House budget proposal calls for a true $1,000 increase in base salary for employees, as well as five days of paid leave. It also calls for a 1.44 percent cost-of-livingadjustment for retirees. These are priorities that SEANC lobbyists have worked closely with representatives to secure. Also included in the budget, thanks to an amendment from Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield, is a provision that, for now, protects the four CDSAs that had been slated for closure. SEANC has long advocated for protection of the CDSAs.

But even though the House budget comes closer to SEANC's pay raise and COLA priorities, that doesn't mean it was all good news for public services and public employees. The budget still includes provisions moving both the Department of Public Safety and the Department of Transportation toward privatization. The budget will now go to conference committee to work out differences between the House and Senate versions. Despite threats by the Senate to leave without a budget, House Speaker Thom Tillis says he expects the General Assembly to finish its process by the end of next week, at which point the bill will head to Gov. Pat McCrory for his consideration. In other legislative news this week, the joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee asked state Auditor Beth Wood to investigate the Department of Health and Human Services' singlesource contracts. According to the legislature’s Program Evaluation Division, only 10 of the department's 143 single-source contracts since 2010 have gone through the appropriate, legally-required review process. SEANC says no thanks to these types of no-bid, sweetheart contracts, and so should DHHS. Click

Treasurer responds to pension investigation State Treasurer Janet Cowell responded this week to the investigative report released by Benchmark Financial Services and SEANC on April 22. In her response, Cowell's chief investment officer Kevin SigRist said the report contained "inaccuracies and unsupported allegations." Click here to read the full News & Observer story about her response. Obviously, SEANC disagrees with SigRist's characterization, which we consider to be full of its own inaccuracies and misleading statements. Currently, our focus is on the state budget and the priorities of state employees and retirees. Once the budget process is complete, we will fully examine Cowell's report and issue a more complete response. In the meantime, if Cowell really wants to match her actions with her words, she should stop hiding behind the term "trade secrets" and make public all fees associated with the pension system. She also is welcome to debate former SEC investigator and author of the report, Ted Siedle, in public. Additionally, she should end her support of a bill that, under the guise of transparency, would simply continue the secrecy by allowing her office to keep investment information out of the public eye for 10 years, making it nearly impossible for retirees, employees and taxpayers to recoup any losses or hold anybody accountable. Already, this is what passes for complying with public records requests when it comes to investment information – redacted pages from Carousel Capital Partners and blank pages from Halifax Capital Partners. This bill would just allow that to continue.

Help stop elimination of vision discounts SEANC members and other state residents have one final opportunity to lobby their legislators on a bill, SB477, that would eliminate the discounts they currently enjoy on vision products and services not covered under the State Health Plan or other health insurance plans.

SEANC is continuing to advocate to lawmakers that they not punish state employees who have not had a meaningful raise in six years and pass a budget containing at least the $1,000 salary raise and five bonus days leave for employees and 1.44 percent cost-of-living adjustment for retirees proposed by the House.

In the meantime, though, SEANC lobbyists also are continuing to work against a bill that would allow the state treasurer to keep investment information secret for five years after the end of the contract. SEANC's Legislative Affairs Director Ardis Watkins spoke to the House State Personnel Committee about why House Bill 1209 is bad for state employees, retirees and taxpayers before the panel voted Wednesday to give it a favorable report and pass it along to the House Appropriations Committee.

SEANC President Sidney Sandy speaks out for transparency in pension system SEANC President Sidney Sandy weighed in on the debate over the future of the state Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System this week, responding to an editorial by the News & Observer that defended state Treasurer Janet Cowell's management of the pension fund and her support of continued secrecy. In his letter, Sandy told the N&O that he was disappointed the newspaper had chosen to characterize this effort to increase transparency as a personal crusade against Cowell. The reason for SEANC's concern, he explained, is because: "That's our money in the retirement system. It's not Cowell's to use as a bargaining chip to gain political favors in the General Assembly and campaign contributions from Wall Street." He then went on to point out that while the pension is one of the best funded in the nation, because of the 6 percent contributions of members and those from the General Assembly, Cowell's performance lags behind the national median. Sandy also pointed out that just as the N&O and others had criticized SEANC for speaking out against former Treasurer Richard Moore's pay-to-play shenanigans, it turned out that we were right. He then encouraged the N&O to actually read our report and do its own investigative reporting, explaining that: "All we want is openness. After all, it's our money at stake."

Legislative Update: Hurry up and wait. Budget, pension secrecy bills stall The General Assembly's budget conference committee continues to meet, but have yet to come to an agreement about how to pay for priorities such as state employee pay increases and retiree cost-of-living adjustments. With the budget stalled in conference committee, SEANC lobbyists are continuing to remind lawmakers of the need to take care of state employees and retirees who have not had a meaningful raise in six years. SEANC is advocating for at least the $1,000 base salary increase and five days paid bonus leave for employees and 1.44 percent COLA for retirees that were included in the House proposal. In the meantime, the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday approved a new "mini budget" that does provide for the $1,000 pay increase, five days leave and 1.44 percent COLA, but does little else, leaving much of the rest of the original two-year budget passed in 2013 in place. The bill, which also carries the governor's support, was then passed unanimously by the House on Thursday. Rep. Nelson Dollar, the House Appropriations Committee chairman, was careful to say that this was not a compromise bill, but rather represented the most important priorities the House wanted to take care of in the coming fiscal year. He did say, though, that he believes it could help spur the conference committee toward finishing its budget agreement. Click here for the full Legislative Update.

Battle over future of pension secrecy heats up, tide turning toward transparency

The battle between the state treasurer's office and others wanting to keep pension information secret, and those, including SEANC, who want more transparency continued this week.

It's award season!

On Wednesday, the Senate Pensions & Retirement and Aging Committee took up Senate Bill 878, a companion to House Bill 1209.

Both bills would ensure that the contracts signed between the state treasurer's office and Wall Street money managers regarding your pension dollars would remain secret long after they expire. SB 878 would keep them secret for 10 years, while HB 1209 would reduce that time frame to five years. In practical terms, though, neither is good for taxpayers as these contracts last, on average, 12 to 15 years, and the statute of limitations on securities fraud is only two years - beginning, in most cases, the day the contract is signed. That means that not only would nearly a generation of public employees go by before any information about these contracts would be made public, but that there would be no way for anyone to be held accountable in the case of wrongdoing or mismanagement. However, after SEANC's Legislative Affairs Director Ardis Watkins and Sen. Shirley Randleman (R-Wilkes) spoke in favor of transparency, committee Chairman Sen. Tom Apodaca (RHenderson) adjourned the meeting without taking a vote. Randleman told her fellow committee members that she favored transparency over secrecy, noting that she has yet to receive information regarding the pension fund's real estate holdings from a 2009 request. Watkins told the committee that these pension secrecy bills being pushed by the treasurer are losers for taxpayers and that if they are approved, then the legislators will be the ones ultimately to blame if and when there is a problem with the retirement system.

SEANC in the news As the debate between those who believe in pension secrecy and those who believe in transparency continues, both state and national media outlets are taking notice. In a story, "Secrecy in pensions triggers legislative brawl in North Carolina," Bloomberg News writes that even as state Treasurer Janet Cowell moves to invest more funds in 'inherently less transparent' alternative investments, many of which are known for overcharging fees, she is fighting efforts to make those contracts public record. The national business publication then quotes SEANC Legislative Director Ardis Watkins, who explained why the association is opposing Senate Bill 878 and House Bill 1209, "It's going to enshrine bad practices. For a generation it's going to keep the public from knowing what they have a right to know." Locally, in a story, "Dueling bills address transparency of NC pension fund investments," the News & Observer identifies that while Cowell is pushing the bill that would give a legislative stamp of approval to her office's practice of keeping these documents hidden, SEANC has helped to put forward a bill that would make all of these records public. Unfortunately, the N&O story also allows the treasurer's office to misrepresent when the statute of limitations on securities fraud begins. It is not, as her spokeswoman says, when a problem is discovered, but rather, according to a 1993 case, Andrew v. Fitzgerald 823 F. Supp. 356, when the contract begins.


SEANC state and district committees give out more than $120,000 in scholarships The SEANC Scholarship Foundation and the 52 districts recently announced they are giving out more than $120,000 in scholarships to assist more than 100 SEANC members, spouses and dependents attend college this year.
