Recorded: Monday, June 29, 2015

Senior Fellow Lawrence McQuillan, author of California Dreaming, appears on WSVA in Virginia to talk about the public employee pension crisis facing municipalities across the US.

Recent bankruptcy courts have ruled that these pension benefits can be cut in the event of a bankruptcy of a city, county or state. McQuillan has a plan that if enacted, could resolve the crisis within decades, while fulfilling promises made to public workers.
