On December 30th, Governor Whitmer signed into law the new Critical Shortage legislation: 

ACTION BY THE GOVERNOR: HB 4694 MPSERS and Substitute Teaching

The bill would modify MPSERS to allow retirants to be employed at a reporting unit under certain circumstances without forfeiting their retirement allowance or health care coverage. For critical shortage areas, the bill would push back a sunset to July 1, 2025; strike a three-year limitation; and remove the 12-month waiting period for retirants who do not work in the month of their retirement and who are working under an extended COVID-19 learning plan. Comparable changes would be made to the MPSERS section on substitute teachers and independent contractors. The bill signed by the governor and assigned Public Act 267 of 2020.
