Ohio Pension Reform

Ohio Pension Reform As public employee unions battle efforts to make changes to the state's collective bargaining laws, legislators are targeting another flank: public employee pensions, which Representative Lynn Wachtmann called overly generous. His bill would require public employees to work longer and in some cases force them -- not taxpayers -- to kick in more money to keep the five public retirement funds in Ohio healthy. Is it a necessary step or another attack? Join us, Thursday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.




Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, R-75 Napoleon
Kevin O’Brien, Director, Center for Public Management, Cleveland State University
William J. Estabrook, executive director, Ohio Police & Fire Pension Fund. 
Bill Leibensperger, VP, Ohio Education Association
