4. Is this customary? I thought the retirement package for Hill members was pretty much cast in stone

--not "negotiable." You do "x" number of years, you qualify for the pension plan.

I haven't kept up--but this would not be SOP in past years.

Does he have any disability insurance? That might be the solution for him, provided it's a policy that doesn't exclude mental illnesses.

Appropriations would have to vote him his "package," would they not, assuming this isn't part and parcel of legislators' pay package benefits?
