November 21, 2019

"This proposal is equally illegal and unconstitutional"

Susan Sullivan, former retired Principal Attorney to the Ohio Attorney General, sent this letter to the Ohio Retirement Study Council (ORSC), stating that taking away the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) retroactively for members of OPERS is illegal.

Although Sullivan's letter focuses on OPERS, her argument applies to STRS as well.

Pay particular attention to the six individuals who are listed at the end of the letter in support of Susan Sullivan's statements about the COLA.
