 January 28, 2013 To:Members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and Governor CorbettUnder the Public Employee Retirement Commission Act (Act 66 of 1981), this Commission has a responsibility to study, on a continuing basis,the Commonwealth’s public employee retirement systems and to reportthereon to the Governor and the General Assembly. Pursuant to that mandateand the pension funding issues brought about by the recent recession and weak recovery, the Commission initiated a study of the current funding crisis,the actions available to manage that problem, and the reforms that may beundertaken to prevent a recurrence of these issues in the future. In thecourse of that study, Commission staff conducted an extensive review of actuarial methodologies, legal strictures, analytical publications, various plandesigns, the reforms adopted in other jurisdictions, and other matters specificto the fragmented nature of Pennsylvania’s local government pension plans.In addition, the Commission issued an open call for interested parties toexpress their ideas, and conducted a series of public hearings in the autumnof 2012 for that purpose.On behalf of the Commission, I hereby submit the attached report for your review and consideration. The Commission hopes that you will find thematerial presented in the report to be beneficial in your deliberations onpension reform, and I specifically extend the services of the Commission staff to assist any member of the administration or General Assembly who seeks todevelop a legislative proposal to address these vital issues.Sincerely,Anthony W. SalomoneChairman
