Your Voice, Your Vote: Covering the PERS debate

In this week’s “Your Voice, Your Vote” we cover the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) debate facing lawmakers in the current legislative session.

Costs are on the rise for public employee pensions, and two bills introduced into the Senate are aimed at alleviating some of those costs to the state.

This week, KATU’s Steve Dunn sits down with Greg Hartmann, the attorney for the PERS Coalition that represents state employee unions; Steve Rodeman, the deputy director for PERS; and John Tapogna, the President of ECONorhtwest and a strong supporter of PERS reform.
