Governor Tom Wolf Statement on Senate Pension Reform Vote

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement in support of the pension reform legislation voted on tonight in the Senate:

“I applaud Senators Corman and Browne for their leadership on reforming our pension system, and I commend members on both sides of the aisle for their work on this very important issue.

“I continue to support reform that pays down our debt, reduces Wall Street fees, and shifts risk away from taxpayers, all while providing workers with a fair retirement benefit.

“This compromise plan, which is the result of tireless efforts over the course of the last several weeks by leaders in both chambers and my administration, accomplishes these goals, and the Senate’s vote tonight is an important first step in the process.”
