A bill requiring retired legislators to pay more for their own health care is a matter of fairness, Senior Legislative Analyst Jack McHugh told the Livingston Daily.

“That’s a matter of fairness and perception,” McHugh said. “It’s about the atmospherics more than anything, and it’s good public policy, too.”

The Detroit News also contacted McHugh about the bill.

"Now that the Legislature is enacting more rational retirement benefits for government employees, it's fair to point out that what's good for the goose is good for the gander," he said.

McHugh previously wrote about the issue here.
