Latest PERS cuts get first challenge

Monday, December 09, 2013
The first challenge to the public retirement cuts passed in September has been filed before the Oregon Supreme Court, judicial department spokesman Phil Lemman said Tuesday.

The Oregon Legislature passed two sets of bills this year that cut back how much people will receive through the Public Employees Retirement System. The first (Senate Bill 822) was passed in the summer during the regular legislative session, and the second (Senate Bill 861) was passed in September during a special session called to increase school funding.

Legal challenges to SB 822 already have been filed, and the deadline for filing challenges to the second, SB 861, is this week, Lemman said.
