The Pennsylvanian Generation Theft Bill -- termed by its supporters "needed pension reform" -- was approved by the State House this afternoon 165-31. It goes on to Gov. Ed Rendell for his certain signature.

The first time the House passed HB 2497 on June 16 the vote was 192-6. The Senate passed it Oct. 16 by a 41-8 vote, however, it tacked on amendments which required a new vote in the House.

On Nov. 5, lame duck Speaker Keith McCall announced that his assembly would be quitting for the year which would require the process to start from scratch in January under a Republican-controlled House.

Is this another one of those bills where all current hires get full benefits but new hires do not?

Thanks so much, boomers!

The new hires don't get as good a pension deal as the old hires but they still get a real sweet pension deal.

I’m confused, what does retire mean and what is a pension? We don’t see that word anywhere in our future.

I think it's something only our wise & holy masters who work for the government may do.
