Kentucky Senate President David Williams will be on the radio with WVLK’s Sue Wylie Thursday morning discussing public pension reform. This discussion will take place on the heels of the Bluegrass Institute’s recently released public pension exposé, Future Shock: Kentucky Politicians’ Opulent Pensions Have Become a Modern Day Gold Rush.
I hope that serious consideration is given to the grave situation depicted in the report. A $34.5 billion unfunded pension liability is not something that can be swept under the carpet and Senator Williams is in a position of leadership that could potentially bring the issue to the forefront of the 2013 General Assembly.
If you would like to voice your concerns about Kentucky’s public pension crisis, listen Thursday morning and call in!
