California's Public Pension Crisis— An Interview with Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan
Recorded: Friday, June 5, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming, appears on KFIV radio in Modesto. McQuillan discusses the man-made financial tsunami that is threatening California: the underfunded public employee pension system. The crisis threatens to bankrupt the state unless it reforms its pension system to a 401k-style contribution plan, that is common in the private sector. McQuillan’s plan will not effect current retirees, but would reform the system over decades to avoid a catastrophe.

Recorded: Thursday, March 26, 2015

Theroux testified on "Childhood Poverty, Government Failures, and the Need for Economic Liberty", before the California State Senate's Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, at the request of State Senator Jeff Stone. The witnesses spoke about California's Maximum Family Grant rule for families on welfare. The rule caps grants and does not increase grant money to mothers on welfare when they have more children. Mary testified about the causes of poverty and of the need for other, non-government options for poor families. She introduced ideas for helping the poor through private resources and organizations, instead of government agencies where families and women often find themselves trapped in a cycle of poverty.
