What is the earliest Governor Brown’s 12-point pension reform proposal could be implemented and where can I find the proposal?
No one can predict the outcome or precise timing of any potential pension reform measures. As meaningful discussions on pension reform take shape, it’s important to remember that the Governor’s 12-Point proposal must work its way though the legislative process before anything is official.
The Governor has also indicated that he intends to submit some of his proposals as constitutional amendments, which require approval by California’s voters. Although there has been no specific legislation introduced to date, the earliest any of the proposals could go into effect would be 2013.
