A state retirement board is again adjusting its rules to better ensure a pension fix passed by the Legislature isn't inadvertently gutted by a mistake in the new law.
Lawmakers were told Tuesday morning the Public Employees Retirement Board repealed an emergency rule that threatened the fix.
The board's attorney says the decision was made at a meeting earlier this month. That followed a decision last month to first adjust the rule.
The problem stems from triggers in the law that went into place July 1.
Those triggers could inadvertently eliminate the planned increases to the amount employees and employers pay into the system. That money is needed to fix projected shortfalls.
The board's recent changes allow it to react later this year without a rigid rule in place.
