The new Bipartisan PERS Solutions Work Group will hold public hearings and craft a
comprehensive PERS solutions package that is bipartisan, fair, constitutional, and that protects
government services. Representatives from schools, local governments, public employee unions,
businesses, and other concerned Oregonians are welcome to serve as members. The work
group held its first meeting on September 21st to hear from experts on
PERS’ unfunded liabilities, impacts of upcoming PERS cost increases, savings options that
reduce unfairness in the PERS system, constitutional guidelines, and took input from local
governments and PERS members.
This workgroup is being staffed by Whitney Padilla in my office. She can be reached at 503-986-1716 or by email at email@example.com.
