It is the Foundation’s recommendation that the Legislature remove from state statute all local retirement systems and devolve authority over these plans back to the respective local community of each. This will serve to help restore local control of these systems, and also allow local government officials and taxpayers to oversee good government reforms to these systems to ensure their stability and sustainability into the future.
