WHAT ARE THE TRACKING LISTS?

On days when the General Assembly is in regular session, Kentucky Retirement Systems creates three documents that monitor legislation of particular importance to the Systems. 

  1. The first document is called the "Daily Legislative Update" that lists bills with a direct potential impact on the Systems.
  1. The second document is called the "Legislation Status Chart."  This chart is designed to give an overall view of a particular Daily Legislative Update Tracking List bill's progress, but will not contain the specific details of the other document.  For most people, this chart will give you all you need to keep abreast of significant developments.
  1. The third document is called "Other Retirement-Related Legislation" that highlights legislation that may have an indirect effect on the Systems. 

When a bill has seen action during the day, the action will be highlighted on the list with bold red font.  Also, you can click on the bill number in the document and it will link you to the LRC website where you can read the bill in its entirety.
