One member of the pension reform conference committee doesn’t expect a deal to be reached anytime soon.
State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Mt. Sterling) acknowledges that progress has been slow, saying the committee has a few components in place, but nothing has been in stone.
“As much progress as I feel like we’ve made, I feel like now we’re kind of stalled trying to get a pulse on what’s going to be acceptable in the House and in the Senate,” Tracy said.
Tracy says there was more dissension amongst committee members at the last meeting. She’s still hopeful that they’ll be ready to recommend legislation in time for the October veto session.
