Despite protests by educators across Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin signed the controversial pension reform bill into law on Tuesday. 

The plan drew thousands of protesters to Frankfort last week. 

It would end the use of accrued sick days for factoring in retirement dates for current employees, continues cost of living adjustments for current retirees, and places new hires into a hybrid cash retirement account. 

The last takes effect on January 1, 2019.
