hundred fifty dollars ($150) per month for each eligible employee electing to

(2) The minimum contribution
rate under subdivision (a)(1) of this section shall increase annually by the
same percentage that the legislature increases the per-student foundation

Based on the percentage that
the legislature increased the per-student foundation funding amount for fiscal

contribution rate increase of 2.336848% required by Ark. Code Ann. § 6-17-1117(a).
