PERS changes coming?
Ted Sickinger of the Oregonian has been digging into PERS for several years now. Sickinger's latest report covers reforms that the Legislature might consider, their consequences, and the likelihood they will survive legal challenges. Former UO student Hannah Hoffman covers PERS often in her State Workers Blog for the Salem Statesman-Journal. And the PERSinfo blog is a focal point for those opposing efforts to reduce benefits. One amazing Sickinger story from last year used public records the Oregonian obtained after a lawsuit to examine the tricks Mike Bellotti used to get $500,000 a year from taxpayers. 11/19/2012.
