| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
Two other initiatives that share the theme, if not the details, of 09-0080, have been filed by Marcia Fritz, the California New Public Employee Benefits Reform Acts.
Title: "Limits Pension Payments That New Public Employees May Receive Upon Retirement. Initiative Statute."
Summary: "Limits the amount of pension payments that any new state or local public employee may receive upon retirement to $100,000 per year. Allows annual cost-of-living increases in proportion to the California Consumer Price Index, so long as total annual pension payments do not exceed $162,500. Prohibits the Legislature from adjusting these limits unless three-quarters of both houses approve."
Estimated Fiscal Impact: "Minor reductions in annual public sector pension costs in the short run. Major reductions in annual public sector pension and retiree health payments several decades from now. Possible increases in other public employee compensation costs, depending on future decisions made by governmental entities and voters."
