News & Updates - California Business Roundtable Statement on Pension Reform
California Business Roundtable President Rob Lapsley today released the following statement in response to efforts by Republican Legislators to support Governor Brown’s public pension reform efforts:
“The California Business Roundtable supports the Governor and Republican Legislators pension reform legislation that will help bring our state’s budget under control for the long term future.
“If the people of California are going to be asked to support new revenues in November than common sense demands that the full Legislature take action right now on reforming a broken pension system.
“Make no mistake, pension reform is just the first of many long term reforms that California needs. We also need education, spending, regulations, budget, infrastructure and health care reforms in order to create a more positive climate for our members to increase investment and jobs.”
