Senate Constitutional Amendment 10 - Pension Transparency

Fact Sheet (pdf)

Bill Text


SCA 10 will prohibit public employers from increasing retirement benefits for their employees without two-thirds voter approval.

Issue Background:

SCA 10 does not prohibit public employees from receiving additional retirement benefits.  It simply requires approval from the very taxpayers who are going to be responsible for paying the generous public employee retirement benefits such as increased retirement formula, cost-of-living adjustments, and reduced retirement age.
