Governor Kim Reynolds doesn't plan on changing IPERS, despite claims from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Fred Hubbell that she does.

The retirement plan offered to state government employees currently averages at $17,000 for an annual pension.

"No, we're not doing anything," said Reynolds to reporters on Wednesday. "I want to be very clear. I hope you are all paying attention right now. That is a scare tactic...I am a recipient of IPERS..."

While on the campaign trail and during a few gubernatorial debates, Fred Hubbell has said Reynolds and Republicans want to change IPERS.
