Discussing Municipal Pensions
The House Urban Affairs Committee recently held an informational meeting in Pittsburgh regarding the health and viability of municipal pensions.
Making the Law Clear: Public Pension Forfeitures
As chairman of the House Ethics Committee, I am sponsoring legislation that would require a public official or public employee to forfeit his or her pension upon a plea of “guilty” or “no contest” to any crime related to his or her official government position or any felony offense. Under the existing Public Employee Pension Forfeiture Act, state employees or state officials who are charged with a forfeiture crime have the ability to plead to a “non-forfeiture” offense - to avoid losing their pensions. My legislation would close this loophole and hold these individuals accountable.
