HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio released the following statement on House Republicans joining Senate Republicans in passing historic pension reform:
“I applaud House Republicans for joining Senate Republicans in passing a pension reform bill that is the largest shift in taxpayer risk of any pension reform in the nation to date. The result of these reforms will be more money in our classrooms and less money spent on expensive retirement benefits.
“This important legislation has broad-based support from organizations such as state and local chambers of commerce, ALEC, the Pew Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, the Commonwealth Foundation, and others.”
— Val DiGiorgio, Chairman, Republican Party of Pennsylvania
