MTF Release in Support of Pension Reform Proposals

The Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation supports the pension reform proposals advanced today by Governor Patrick with Senate President Murray, House Speaker DeLeo and Treasurer-elect Grossman. Unlike the 2009 and 2010 legislation which simply closed longstanding loopholes, these proposals offer a more comprehensive reform of the pension system which strengthens its longterm financing while preserving a generous retirement program for state and municipal employees.
