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.  Englebright sponsored one of these eight.<ref>[http://www.cbcny.org/cbc-blogs/blogs/busy-day-albany Citizens Budget Commission, "A Busy Day in Albany," February 20, 2013]</ref>  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.<ref>[http://www.nytorch.com/?p=7131 E.J. McMahon, Empire State Center for New York Policy, "Pension follies continue," February 21, 2013]</ref>  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."<ref>[http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/-article-1.1269289 ''New York Daily News'', "More, more, always more," February 21, 2013]</ref>

Issues

Pension sweeteners

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. Englebright sponsored one of these eight.[2] 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.[3] 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."[4]

  • Assembly Bill 4920, sponsored by Peter Abbate, William Colton, Vivian Cook, Michael Cusick, Englebright, and Harvey Weisenberg, would allow Tier I and II employees of the New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System (NYSLERS) and the New York State and Local Police and Fire Retirement System (NYSLPFRS) to include up to 30 days of unused vacation time in the final average salary calculation for their pension benefits. This would cost the state government an estimated $110 million and local governments an estimated $45 million.[5]
