About Skipping Pension Payments…

Turns out, you can’t just blame state legislators for skipping pension payments:

* I asked the Senate Republicans for the list of proponents and opponents of the bill which allowed the state to skip pension payments. Here it is…

SB 27 Proponnents [sic]:

Rich Frankenfeld, IEA “testimony if necessary”
Derek Blaida, CPS
Steve Preckwinkle, IFT “testimony if necessary”
Laura Arterburn, IFT
Michael McGann SEIU
Kurt Anderson SEIU

Opponents:
Randy Witter, Retired State Employees Association
Martin Noven, Treasurer’s office (Topinka)

Can we quit the finger-pointing and get on with problem solving now?
