House GOP Pension Leader Issues Statement on Potential Legislation

Pettengill:  There is no threat to IPERS

(DES MOINES) – Today, Rep. Dawn Pettengill (R-Mount Auburn), Co-Chair of the House-Senate Public Retirement Systems Committee, issued the following statement regarding legislation related to IPERS and other public retirement systems:

“As Co-Chair of the Public Retirement Systems Committee, I can assure Iowans that there is no threat to IPERS or any other pension system next session.  IPERS is well managed and remains one of the most sound pension systems in the country.

House Republicans are committed to protecting the retirement security of all public pension beneficiaries, and will not advance any legislation that alters pensions next session.  Suggestions by Democrats that changes are coming to IPERS, or any of Iowa’s public pension systems, are self-serving and false.

The fear mongering tactics being used by Democrats to scare retirees are disgusting.”
