Devin Nunes Attacks Central Valley Seniors…Again


Devin Nunes Attacks Central Valley Seniors…Again

Fresno, CA (Aug. 20, 2018) Devin Nunes is back again from the push of lobbyists at advancing legislation in Congress that attacks seniors he is supposed to represent.

H.R. 4822, the Public Employee Pension Transparency Act, requires the public sector defined benefit pension systems like the City of Fresno Retirement Systems (CFRS) to calculate liabilities using the rate of return on U.S. Treasury bonds. H.R. 4822 will raise costs for employees and local governments to fund Public pensions and not actually reduce any risks.

Ultimately, this bill will be a waste of taxpayer dollars and have a horrible impact on the retirement community here in the Central Valley. Andrew Janz strongly opposes this legislation and is urging lawmakers to do the same.

Letter from the City of Fresno Retirement Systems to their members and retirees.
