Sen. McKinney statement on Malloy Pension Reform Proposal

January 23, 2012

State Senate Minority Leader John McKinney (R-Fairfield) released this statement on Governor Malloy’s proposed pension reform

“Paying off our pension debt is a good thing, but doing so outside of the spending cap shows that Governor Malloy is still not serious about reducing unnecessary state spending and, further, that he is not serious about pension reform. Clearly, his deal with SEBAC failed to adequately deal with our long term indebtedness. Real leadership requires real reforms and that is what is needed in these difficult times.”
