Bipartisam Group Appointed to Examine KY’s Pension Problems

Kentucky legislative leaders have appointed a bipartisan working group to examine the state’s troubled public pension system.

Kentucky has one of the worst funded public pension systems in the country. Last year, the Republican-controlled legislature passed a pension bill with no Democratic support. The state Supreme Court struck the law down in December.

Republican Gov. Matt Bevin called lawmakers back in session in December to pass a version of the law again. But lawmakers adjourned without passing anything.
