ETF Provides Summary of 2013 Wisconsin Act 20
On June 30, 2013, Governor Walker signed the 2013-15 biennial budget
Wisconsin Act 20). The Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF)
has completed a review of the law and prepared a summary
of the provisions that relate to ETF and its administration of the
Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) and other benefit programs.
Among other things, the budget bill contains a few changes to
the WRS, including revisions to the law governing WRS retirees returning
to work and a number of routine, technical updates to reflect federal
requirements. These latter changes are necessary for the WRS to
remain compliant with federal Internal Revenue Code and do not affect
the benefits of WRS participants.
We will continue to keep you posted on other legislative developments
as they occur. If you are interested in monitoring legislative developments

State Legislature website.
