Underfunded public employee pensions are one of the major fiscal crises confronting American states and municipalities. It is estimated that the shortfall is as much as $1 trillion and payments to retirees increasingly are diverting funds for necessary services, including police, fire, schools, roads, and other core services.Efforts at reform have run into increasing legal roadblocks, whether in bankruptcy court or under state law. This Public Policy Conference will bring together leading scholars and commentators for a full-spectrum review of the law, economics, political economy, and public policy issues regarding public employee pensions and pension reform. The proceedings of the Conference will be published in a special symposium issue of Scalia Law’s Journal of Law, Economics & Policy.
