House Democratic Leader on Pension and Tax Reform

KET’s Renee Shaw talks with House Minority Floor Leader Rocky Adkins (D-Sandy Hook) about public pension reform, its impact on the state budget, and the need for tax reform. Adkins says it is unwise to throw away the existing defined-benefit pension system, which he contends ensures the state is able to attract quality public employees and teachers.

The conversation was recorded on Jan. 3. 2018.
