For those following AB 1222, here’s the latest update from Metro’s government relations team:
AB 1222 (Bloom) which would provide a 15 month exemption from the state’s pension reform law passed the Assembly Committee on Public Employees Retirement and Social Security committee today on a unanimous vote. The bill will now be considered in the Assembly which most likely will not occur until tomorrow.
What’s all this about? It’s a bill that would exempt transit workers from the state’s pension reform (PEPRA) in order to continue the flow of federal transit funds to transit agencies in California, including Metro. More background in our earlier post.
