2012 Senate Bill 1129: Authorize local “pension obligation bonds” (Senate Roll Call 546)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 25 to 11 in the Senate on June 14, 2012, to allow local governments to borrow money to cover unfunded employee pension liabilities, if the local has closed its traditional “defined benefit” pension system to new employees. Unlike other local government borrowing (usually called “bonding” or “selling bonds”), no vote of the people would be required.
