Pension Sustainability Commission

July 27, 2018

We had the first meeting of the CT Pension Sustainability Commission. Addressing the growing unfunded pension liability problem will be instrumental in turning around Connecticut's budget situation and shaping our state’s economic future.

The Commission will consider the feasibility of maximizing the value of state capital assets, such as select, state-owned real estate and the CT State Lottery. If the theory proves viable, those enhanced value assets will generate revenue streams which will be dedicated to paying down the unfunded liability. I am confident that we can readily accomplish what we are tasked with.
