Advocacy

Sharing our Perspective on Public Pensions

Routine criticism of public pension plans at the national and state level is frequently based on incorrect perceptions of the defined benefit model.

Through an active presence in Sacramento, we inform policy makers and the media on the facts about defined benefit retirement plans. This effort is part of our broader advocacy program that includes:

  • Dissemination of responsible data on county pension programs
  • Analyzing legislation for its influence on county pension programs, and
  • Acting on legislation that impacts our entire membership  

Lawmakers view our Association as an honest broker and industry thought leader that values the interests of both the California economy and its hardworking public employees.
