PA House Scraps Pension Reform Plans

06.11.14 | Bob Price

  Members of the Republican majority met privately on the topic for hours yesterday afternoon but a spokesman says a complicated proposal to create a hybrid pension system for future school and state workers generated many questions but not a lot of answers. It's not known whether the house will take up the proposal when lawmakers reconvene today. Governor Corbett says he will not consider a tax increase to help fill a significant budget gap unless the legislature agrees first to a pension overhaul.
