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 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.
