YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – A taxpayer watchdog group is challenging Ohio lawmakers to release public employee pension records and support pension reform.
Taxpayers United of America contends that employee pension payouts are public information paid for with taxpayer dollars, but says Ohio refuses to make them public.
“We just want the pensions. The taxpayers are funding this and they should have access to see where their money is going,” said Christina Tobin, Vice President of Taxpayers United.
The group says in many cases government pensions are higher than private sector salaries and without reform the system will collapse.
