The director of the Kansas Legislature's research staff is stepping down next month to become executive director of the state pension system for teachers and government workers.

Alan Conroy will become the top administrator at the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System on Feb. 13. He was chosen by the KPERS board to replace Glenn Deck, who retired in September.

Conroy has worked for the Kansas Legislative Research Department for 30 years and served as director since 2002. He's widely respected among legislators of both parties for his knowledge of the state's finances.

He'll take over at KPERS as legislators consider whether to start a 401(k)-style retirement plan for new public employees.
