    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, April 22, 2010, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on California public pension systems. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission will examine public pension plans in California. Public employee retiree costs are one of the biggest drivers of state and local government costs, and have been on the rise. The Commission will study the long-term implications of current structures and trends within today’s pension programs and, if warranted, recommend changes for a healthier system in the future. At this hearing, the Commission seeks to understand key issues surrounding public employee pension plans in California.

    The Commission will hear from Girard Miller, a retirement plan consultant and commentator, on problems and solutions within the pension systems. The Commission also will hear from Tony Oliveira, president of the California State Association of Counties and a member of the CalPERS Board of Administration. Following him, Ron Cottingham, president of the Peace Officers Research Association of California, also will speak to the Commission. Richard Stensrud, the chief executive officer of the Sacramento County Employees’ Retirement System, will speak. Finally, David Crane, special advisor to the governor for jobs and economic growth, will speak.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in State Capitol room 125.

    On Wednesday, April 21, 2010, the Commission staff will conduct a briefing for Commissioners on the agenda for the following day’s hearing. The meeting will begin at 3 p.m. in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room in the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
