Business Group Supports Gov. Brown’s Pension Reform Plan
On Monday, 15 members of the Regional Economic Association Leaders Coalition endorsed a 12-point pension reform plan by Gov. Jerry Brown (D). In a letter to the governor and lawmakers, the members of the business group said that the plan is "an important first step toward returning our pension obligations to a state of fiscal sustainability." Brown has not pushed forward with the plan since Republicans in February used its proposals for their own legislation.
