Issues

Pension legislation

A 2011 proposal to cut benefits and require longer hours for new state employees earned Bradley significant blowback from public employee unions. Bradley's bill called for public employees to contribute an extra 2 percent of their wages to the state's retirement system, a cut to retirement benefits for new hires, and mandated extra hours for all employees. Though the plan, which passed the GOP-controlled legislature, was subsequently vetoed by Democratic John Lynch, Republican lawmakers shoehorned it into law by attaching it to the state budget bill.

During a speech pitching his plan, Bradley said that his plan was "tough medicine" that would save the state, which faced a $4.7 billion budget deficit, about $700 million over the coming decades.[1][2]
