Knoxville City Employee Pension Plan
Broadcast Date: June 10, 2012
Cities across the nation, including Knoxville, are dealing with the rising cost of providing pensions to police, firemen, and government workers. There is a proposal to amend the city charter, close the present pension plan and create a hybrid plan. Joining Gene Patterson this week to talk about the proposal is Bill Lyons, the chief policy officer and deputy to Mayor Madeline Rogero.
Later, Gene is joined by former deputy to the mayor Craig Griffith, Cortney Piper of Piper Communications, and 6 News political analyst George Korda.
