A bill to increase cost-of-living benefits for state retirees is set to pass after Gov. Chris Sununu broke from his party and announced his support.
Flanked by firefighters last week, Sununu portrayed the proposal as an overdue effort. The last increase was in 2010.
“For nearly 10 years, our state’s retirees have been without an actual cost-of-living adjustment that directly goes toward the base payment of their benefits,” Sununu said, adding that the “time to do this is now.”
