Lawmaker Criticizes Pension Reform Not Including Judges

A local lawmaker is questioning why judges are being singled out for special treatment on the issue of pension reform.


While the bill passed this week makes significant changes to four of the state’s five public pension systems, the system that governs pensions for judges was exempt.


Republican Representative Bill Mitchell of Forsyth says that decision makes judges a “new aristocracy” who don’t have to face the same rules or challenges as other public employees.


Critics of the pension reform bill contend judges were left out in order to improve the chances that the bill would withstand a court challenge.
