Steven Greenhut Says Jerry Brown is All Talk on Teacher-Pension Mess

California Gov. Jerry Brown announced his first budget in 2011, and his plans for reforming the state's pension systems were, and remain, mired in liabilities. Pension reform went nowhere until 2012, and then it was a watered down package. Given that experience, Steven Greenhut says it's easy to wonder whether Gov. Brown is serious about his recent call to fix a pressing pension issue related to the underfunded California State Teachers' Retirement System.
