(WLNS) – They spent years patrolling our roads to keep us safe and legislation headed to the Michigan House for consideration would bring pay for retired state police troopers above the poverty line.

Earlier this month the state Senate unanimously approved two bills that would raise the pensions of the 96 former state troopers from decades ago to get at least $16,000 every year.

Former troopers say the new pensions if passed would bring retirees above the poverty level since they are not covered by social security.
