The Louisiana Senate Retirement Committee advances two bills that are a big part of Governor Bobby Jindal's proposed state worker retirement reforms.

One bill raises the minimum retirement age to 67 for tens of thousands of state employees. The other retirement bill raises state employees' payroll contributions to their pensions by 3%.

The bills are intended to reduce the state's retirement debt, called the unfunded accrued liability. The two retirement measures are on their way to the Louisiana Senate floor for debate.
