Rose Fellow Douglas Johnson on pension reform

An August 7th article in The Press-Enterprise titled “Pension reform at forefront in Riverside County” quoted Rose Institute Fellow Douglas Johnson on the aftermath of the scandal relating to the outrageous salaries and pensions of city officials in Bell, California.

According to Johnson, “pension reform is gaining traction, particularly given the recent controversy in Bell, where the former city manager qualified for a $600,000-a-year retirement.” Johnson says, “we are only in the early rounds of public awareness and alarm. Bell has woken up the state to what is really a serious crisis for just about every jurisdiction.”
