    Whereas, The State of West Virginia values the contributions of its veterans who are employed by the State and its political subdivisions; and

    Whereas, The State of West Virginia demonstrates its regard for its veterans who are employed by the State and its political subdivisions by offering military service credit towards the veteran employee’s retirement benefits without requiring employee contribution; and

    Whereas, The Legislature finds that this military service credit is not consistent among the state retirement plans; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Legislature hereby requests the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the provisions relating to military service retirement credits in the Teachers Retirement System, the Public Employees Retirement System, the State Police Retirement System and the Judges Retirement System; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the provisions of military service credit in all state retirement plans to promote consistency and fairness to the state’s veterans while maintaining the financial solvency of the state’s retirement systems; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
