Kentucky Chamber asks business leaders to serve on pension task force

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is calling on the business community to assist in finding solutions to the state’s persistent pension problems by serving on a Blue Ribbon Task Force on Public Pensions.

The Kentucky Chamber is ramping up its efforts to responsibly address the issue by putting together a Blue Ribbon Task Force on Public Pensions, made up of business people with financial and pension expertise from within the Chamber’s membership.

The group will put a magnifying glass on the issues within the pension system and work to develop recommendations to fix the pension systems.

The Chamber has been vocal about the pension crisis being the most serious financial issue facing the state. While many other groups are beginning to take a deeper look into the system, including the Public Pension Oversight Board and a new work group looking into the Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System, the Chamber would like to add more voices and eyes to the reform effort.

Please contact Bryan Sunderland, senior VP of public affairs (bsunderland@kychamber.com), if you are interested in serving on the task force or have any questions.
