Kansas Public Employees Retirement System, Topeka, will be required to divest companies with business ties in Sudan as the result of a bill signed Friday by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, confirmed spokesman Seth Bundy. Glenn Deck, executive director of the $13.3 billion pension fund, will compile a report so the 2008 Legislature can address the financial impact of divestiture. Vince Smith, CIO, said the fund has about $38 million in Sudan-related holdings. The bill takes effect July 1, Mr. Bundy said.
