P&I Online readers could not agree on what was the best step states have taken to reduce future pension costs as two answers received the same number of votes.
“Increasing employee contributions” and “raising age and tenure requirements” both received 33% of reader responses.
“Shrinking or stopping cost-of-living increases” received 23% of reader responses.
The least popular reform was “trimming salary calculation formulas,” which received only 11% of reader responses.
The poll question was asked in conjunction with last week's story titled “Pace of pension reform ebbs after 49 states change laws.”
