Lawmaker: Pension Deal Turns Judges Into ''New Aristocracy''

An area lawmaker is critical of the fact that judges were left out of the pension reform deal that reduced benefits for most other public sector workers in the state. 


Republican Bill Mitchell says judges get a much larger pension than the average teacher or state worker… but they will continue to receive the compounded three-percent cost-of-living increase that is being taken away from the other pension systems. 


He says the bill turns judges into a “new aristocracy” and "super-citizens" who can't be touched by the same rules that affect other public employees.  Some opponents of the pension bill believe judges were specifically excluded to improve the chances that the bill won't be struck down by the courts as unconstitutional.
