SMI in the Springfield News-Leader Today
We have two pieces published in the Springfield News-Leader today. First, Dr. Joseph Haslag has an op-ed about why Springfield should transition its pension fund to a defined contribution plan instead of its current defined benefit plan. While most private entities have already moved to the former, most public entities still maintain the latter, and in Springfield it has resulted in an enormous funding gap.
Also, the News-Leader published a letter to the editor by Dave Roland, about property rights and eminent domain.
Both pieces have generated a good deal of commentary online — most worthwhile, some less so.
