State Comptroller Kevin P. Lembo unveiled a detailed plan Thursday to help Connecticut dodge a fiscal iceberg nearly two decades from now by capping its annual pension costs below $2.3 billion through 2033.
The top Republican in the state Senate charged Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and state employee unions Friday with making an end run around the legislature to resolve a disability pension controversy that the state auditors said may have cost Connecticut millions of dollars in improper payments.
A new agreement that restores a more lenient standard for awarding state disability pensions will take effect immediately and won’t be presented to the General Assembly for consideration in 2016, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration confirmed Thursday.
Negotiators for the state and its employee unions have reached a tentative agreement that could resolve a long-running controversy over state disability pension payments, the state’s chief labor negotiator said Thursday.
