    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, September 23, 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 is examining 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 the future.

    The Commission will hear from Ann Boynton, the deputy executive officer of benefits administration for the California Public Employees’ Retirement System. The Commission also will hear from John Bartel, the president of the actuarial consulting firm Bartel Associates; Chuck Reed, the mayor of San Jose; and Jon Hamm, the chief executive officer of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen.

    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 the Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.

    On Wednesday, September 22, 2010, the Public Pensions Subcommittee of the Commission has scheduled a meeting to gather general information about the California State Teachers’ Retirement System. The meeting will begin at 3:00 p.m. in the Legislative Counsel’s Conference Room at 925 L Street, in Sacramento.
