Kampf Holds Town Hall Meeting on Pensions and Our Schools
HARRISBURG-- In order to help people better understand the severe impact of the state pension system on budgets at the state and local level, and to hear from his constituents about this issue, Rep. Warren Kampf (R-Chester/Montgomery) will host a town hall meeting on Sunday, March 18, at 4 p.m. at the Tredyffrin Township Building, 1100 Duportail Road in Berwyn.
“The state’s pension system for teachers and state employees is a huge burden for the state and for our school districts,” Kampf said. “Pension costs are one of the top cost drivers for the state as well as local governments and school districts. I believe we must try to reform this system so we are not facing these problems over and over again.”
In addition to the town hall, Kampf himself plans to introduce legislation to move future state workers and school employees to self-directed 401(k)-style retirement plans.
“The town hall will give citizens a chance to learn about the current system, how we came to be here, and what proposals there are for reform,” Kampf said. “It will also give me a chance to hear from my constituents about the situation.”
