Op-Ed: “Connecticut Must Face True Pension Liabilities”

Posted on July 10, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

CTCPA Past President Marcia Marien led the charge to “fix our future” here in Connecticut a few years ago – so she was understandably delighted last month when the GASB approved two new, game-changing standards last month. The new standards will require state and local governments to report significant pension-related liabilities on their balance sheets.

Today’s Hartford Courant features an op-ed by Marcia on those standards and Connecticut’s fiscal health. It’s a great read for CPAs, politicians, legislators – and all Connecticut residents.

Bravo, Marcia!
