And now, from the loyal opposition

ALBANY -- We'll let the state GOP press release do all the talking.

On Pension Reform: Job Well Done, Governor

"In an op-ed last month, we suggested that Governor Cuomo utilize his State of the State address and strong budgetary powers to fight for public pension reform, specifically by reintroducing his Tier VI pension proposal in his Executive Budget.

"We thank the Governor for doing just that, for adding an attractive defined contribution plan, and standing firm despite special interest opposition.

"The Governor's plan will save $120 billion over 30 years, substantially easing the burden on New York's cash-strapped counties. This is the kind of meaningful reform that can be achieved when Democrats and Republicans work together to better New York."
