2019 Legislation

As we indicated the 13th check for 2019 and 2020 was in serious jeopardy during the late stage of the 2019 Legislature.

The Senate Appropriations Committee deleted funding for the 13th check late in the session. Thanks to the many RIPEA members who contacted their Legislators expressing their disappointment and the hardship this would cause them and all RIPEA members, there will now be a 13th check for 2019 and 2020.

We are grateful to our members and the many hours worked by RIPEA’s Lobbyist to insure the 13th check for 2 more years
