Group opposes additional changes to state pension plans

(Continued)

Ada —

     Rep. Todd Thomsen, R-Ada, said the state should take a wait-and-see approach before considering additional reforms.

     “I think we’ve taken significant steps to shore up the pension system,” he said Wednesday. “We need time to let them play out and see their impact, but it’s also worthy to continue the discussion on other possibilities.”

     Sen. Susan Paddack, D-Ada, also said the state should give previous reforms more time to work.

     “If you continually do reform upon reform upon reform, how do you know you’re getting the results you want?” she said.
