Lawmakers Debate Pension Proposals While Acknowledging Constitutional Question


A Senate committee has approved two pension-reform proposals… even as lawmakers continue to debate whether or not the ideas are even constitutional.

 

Several of the senators who supported the measures in committee Wednesday say they’re only doing so to keep the debate going… and are not committing to voters for either proposal when they come up for a full Senate vote.

 

While some lawmakers question the constitutionality of changing promised pension benefits, others say the current proposals don’t go far enough to reduce the state’s unfunded liability.
