Dave Lewis, R-Helena, is gunning for the pension you’ve earned.

Protecting public employees’ and teachers’ pensions is one of MEA-MFT’s top priorities this legislative session.

 

Some legislators — notably Dave Lewis (R-Helena) are determined to undo Montana’s generations-old promise of a dignified, poverty-free retirement for public employees and teachers.

 

It’s especially ironic given that Lewis, a former Montana state employee, is now living comfortably on his state pension (PERS). Apparently he believes he deserves a defined benefit pension, but new state employees don’t.
