Comprehensive Pension Reform Primer Released by League

October 30, 2012

The League has released a comprehensive primer on AB 340 (Furutani) as modified by AB 197 (Buchanan). The document is available on the League’s Pension Information Center.


The primer recommends actions steps for cities to consider before Jan. 1, 2013 when the new law takes effect, covers cities’ duty to bargain and scope of representation under the new law, and answers many of the frequently asked questions posed by League members since the passage of the new law.

This document came together with the help and great work of a Working Group organized by the League. The Working Group consisted of the following members:

  • Ron Bates, Pico Rivera
  • Robert Blum, Hanson Bridgett
  • Holly Brock-Cohn, Alameda
  • Ariel Calonne, Ventura
  • Terri Cassidy, Newport Beach
  • William Kay, Burke, Williams and Sorensen
  • Michael Matsumoto, Pico Rivera
  • LeeAnn McPhillips, Gilroy
  • Alison Neufeld, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore
  • Fran Robustelli, Hayward
  • Frances Rogers, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore
  • Jenny Roney, Ventura
  • Cepideh Roufougar, Jackson Lewis
  • Charles Sakai, Renne Sloan Holtzman Sakai
  • Erich Shiners, Renne Sloan Holtzman Sakai
