VIDEO: Huff Talks Pension Reform on Senate Floor

The senator said he is frustrated by Democrats refusal to act on pension reform proposals introduced by Gov. Jerry Brown.

In the Capitiol Comment for the week of June 18, Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) discusses his failed push to bring pension reform bills similar to Gov. Jerry Brown's plan straight to the Senate Floor for a debate and and an up or down vote.

Senate and Assembly Republicans introduced the Governor's 12-point public pension reform plan earlier this year, acting on the Democrat Governor's request to "take action" on his plan. However, the Senate Republican Leader said his attempt to bring the Governor's modest reforms up for a simple debate or vote was immediately shelved by Democrats without explanation.

Huff's without comment. Senator Huff says election results from pension reform efforts that were on the June ballot in San Jose and San Diego clearly show that a vast majority of Californians want the State Legislature to take action on the escalating costs of public pensions.

Senator Huff serves the 29th Senate District covering Diamond Bar, Walnut and Industry.

Results from San Jose and San Diego clearly show that a vast majority of Californians...interesting to know that those cities speak for the state. He still has not explained how cutting jobs will create jobs.
