Pension reform efforts have been making headlines recently as state and local governments have been scrutinizing expenses to make ends meet in the recession. High-profile debates in Wisconsin, New Jersey and elsewhere in 2011 renewed attention on government employee retirement benefits and salaries. For several years, states and local governments have been adjusting their employee benefit plans to eliminate pensions.
