Herron Jr) - Amend KRS 95.560 and 95.624 to provide that in cities of the third class which have their own retirement systems the cost of living increase for police and fire shall be the annual increase to the Social Security benefits rather than the CPI as calculated in KRS 64.527, not to exceed 5%.
