The Bee's Jim Sanders reports this morning, that the Legislature "essentially threw in the towel Thursday on comprehensive public pension reform -- at least for now."
A pension reform measure, Assembly 340, got the same treatment. Now, instead of making changes to county pensions, it "States legislative intent to convene a conference committee to craft responsible and comprehensive pension reform legislation that reflects both the needs of public employees and the fiscal situations of state and local government."
You could see it coming. As we noted earlier this week, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill to increase survivor benefits with a message that, "the changes this bill makes should be part of a more comprehensive pension reform."
