Today at the SC State House: Making up the pensions shortfall

S.C. legislators today take the next step in filling a $20 billion hole in the state pension system.

H.3726 is set to be taken up by a subcommittee of House Ways and Means this afternoon.

Reform of the pension system would fall most heavily on the Palmetto State’s counties, cities and schools.

The bill would raise the percentage of an employee’s pay that public-sector employers would have to contribute to the state’s pension system.

That means taxpayers will have to send the pension system $7 more for every $100 that a city worker, for example, is paid.
