Brown ‘Trying To Have it Both Ways’ on CalPERS Proposals, Mercury News Editorial Argues
A San Jose Mercury News editorial argues that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) is "trying to have it both ways" in criticizing a CalPERS proposal to include pay from temporary promotions when calculating public workers' pension benefits. The editorial agrees that the proposal violates state law and could create abuse, but adds, "[S]o do the other 98 items" proposed by CalPERS that Brown "tacitly" agreed to.
