Little Hoover executive set to testify on pension report

The Assembly Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security Committee and the Senate Public Employment and Retirement Committee will hold a joint hearing tomorrow that will include a discussion of last week's Little Hoover Commission report on public employee pensions.

Little Hoover Executive Director Stuart Drown is expected to give a brief statement and then take questions, maybe 15 minutes in all, we've been told.

The hearing will cover more than the Little Hoover report. Among other officials listed on the joint committee's agenda: DPA Director Ron Yank, CalSTRS CEO Jack Ehnes and CalPERS CEO Anne Stausboll. Dave Low, executive director of the Labor Coalition, will also speak.
