FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 28, 2017) - Below is Gov. Matt Bevin's statement on PFM's pension report:
“This latest report from PFM further confirms the need for urgency as we resolve Kentucky’s pension crisis.
“Change is necessary. Time is not our ally—we must act now to get our financial house in order. There is no other viable option.
“I am convinced we can get this done and am committed to doing so. For those now retired, for those still working and for those yet to come: we will save the public retirement systems.
"We will not kick the can down the road any longer. We were elected to fix this problem and we will. The fiscal abuse of Kentucky’s retirement systems is over."
