June 28, 2012, was the last day for the California legislature to pass a constitutional amendment to appear on November’s ballot to address pension reforms. Pension reforms are a critical issue to the sustainability of our way of life and yet the California voters will not be able to address this important issue in November. Here’s what happened.

Last October, Governor Jerry Brown came out with his 12 point Pension Reform plan. Senator Bob Huff, Dist. 29, introduced SCA 18, which copied the governor’s 12-point plan and introduced it to the legislature. SCA 18 never made it out of committee. The Democrat-controlled legislature would not allow the voters to consider pension reform.
