Lawmakers will be voting on a plan the governor says would help relieve quasi-governmental agencies of ballooning pension costs.

Agencies affected include regional universities, health departments, domestic violence centers, and community health centers.

The governor made changes to the plan he originally proposed more than two months ago, and has been working to get more lawmakers on board to pass it in a special session.
