Fifteenth District State Representative Brent Yonts is a member of the Task Force on Pensions in the General Assembly and says a recommendation will be made by the end of the year.
Representative Yonts says fixing the pension system problems is a monumental task.
Representative Yonts says a number of factors have led to the pension system getting in bad shape over several years, including bad investments and a lack of sufficient funding.
The General Assembly will have to take action on the matter next year in order to keep the system afloat; it’s just a matter of what action.
Yonts represents Muhlenberg and portions of Christian and Hopkins Counties.
