House, Senate post pension overhaul for Thursday
While Assembly leaders make eleventh-hour changes, both the House and Senate have posted the pension overhaul legislation for committee action at
4 5 p.m. on Thursday. Larry Berman, House spokesman, declined comment on changes that are being considered because negotiations are on-going.
But one element is becoming clear: Neither legislative chamber wants the pension overhaul to hang out there too long and let it get nibbled away. It appears the Assembly leadership aim of getting the legislation done before Thanksgiving is on its way to happening.
True to form, nobody in the leadership is overly concerned about the lack of transparency as the legislation moves quickly to a vote.
