PERS Study Commission cannot hit report deadline

JACKSON — The wait for the report from the Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) Study Commission will be longer than expected.

The Governor’s Office announced the Nov. 15 deadline would be missed.

The statement from the governor reads: “Due to the complicated nature of the review of the state Public Employees’ Retirement System, the PERS Study Commission has advised me it will not complete its recommendations by Nov. 15. I am told the final report will be issued later this month.”

    I find it odd that the commission will not be meeting again yet the report can not be issued. Could it be that the Commission and the Governor are waiting until the Christmas Holidays, when people are distracted, to release the infomration. The legislative session starts in January and the people of this state should have access to the infomration the legislators will have.
