Three Pennsylvania pension reform bills made their way out of the House State Government Committee and will now be considered by the full chamber, which could be called for debate when lawmakers return to Harrisburg later this month.

The proposals came out of recommendations made by a public pension review commission that was formed through legislation passed two years ago. The commission identified actuarial savings of about $10 billion over a 30-year span for both the State Employees’ Retirement System (SERS) and the Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS).
