LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The controversial pension reform bill passed by Kentucky's General Assembly on Thursday sparked immediate protests by teachers.

Gov. Bevin is expected to sign Senate Bill 151 into law.

SB 151 keeps benefits the same for current teachers and state workers, but changes new hires to a hybrid cash balance plan.

It also freezes sick days at the end of each fiscal year.
