On February 13, 2013, New York legislators introduced eight bills to "sweeten" government employee pensions. The nonpartisan Citizens Budget Commission released a chart of these bills and their costs, totaling $1.311 billion for the state government and $46 million for local governments. Cymbrowitz sponsored one of these eight. E.J. McMahon of the pro-market Empire State Center for New York Policy criticized the bills but placed major responsibility for them on Governor Andrew Cuomo, who in 2012 raised the possibility of better pension deals if the economy improved. The New York Daily News published an editorial against the bills on February 21, denouncing the proposals as examples of "incorrigible recklessness with the public’s money."
- Assembly Bill 4914, sponsored by Peter Abbate, William Colton, Jeffrion Aubry, William Boyland, Barbara Clark, Vivian Cook, Cymbrowitz, Dennis Gabryszak, Earlene Hill Hooper, Jose Rivera, Matthew Titone, and Harvey Weisenberg, would give all non-correction officers in the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision a performance of duty disability benefit worth 75% of their final average salary. This bill would cost the state an estimated $100,000 in increased pension contributions.
