There is little debate over the fact that New Jersey must address its public employee pension and health benefit obligations or face financial calamity. What is the impact of funding the current pension system? What role do health benefit obligations play in the situation? What is the cost of inaction? What are possible solutions to avoid a crisis?

Please join us at 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 19, on BlogTalkRadio for A Conversation on New Jersey’s Pension and Health Benefit Predicament.

Tom Byrne, chair of the State Investment Council and a member of the New Jersey Pension and Health Benefit Study Commission, will discuss these issues with NJSBA’s Ray Pinney. BlogTalkRadio, which is like a radio interview program conducted online, can be accessed via NJSBA’s website. Programs are also archived for listening later.

To contact the host during the program, please call (347) 989-8904.
