Banter Continues on Teacher Pension Shift to the Counties

As reported in the Gazette, the House is unlikely to support the teacher pension shift approved by the Senate.

The head of the Montgomery County House delegation said Thursday the House of Delegates is unlikely to pass a Senate proposal that shifts some of the costs of teacher pensions to the counties.

“I think the Montgomery delegation will be strongly opposed,” said Chairman Brian J. Feldman (D-Dist. 15) of Potomac. “You simply cannot muster the votes on the House side.”

State information shows that Montgomery County would be hit hard fiscally by the shift, as well as Prince George’s County.
