Colorado government pensions are governed by the Public Employees' Retirement Association (PERA). In November 2013, the PERA voted to lower its expectations on investments from 8 percent to 7.5 percent. Stapleton estimated that the change would increase the unfunded liability by $6 billion. Stapleton had previously advocated for lowering the rate of return, while warning of the likelihood of a fund collapse. The vote passed narrowly, 8-7.
Stapleton ran for re-election. He was uncontested for the Republican nomination in the June 24 primary election and faced two challengers, Democrat Betsy Markey and Libertarian David Jurist, in the general election on November 4, 2014.
Stapleton won a narrow election to become Colorado Treasurer on November 2, 2010.
