Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement on the Senate Floor after Senate Democrats blocked attempts to bring public pension reform bills SB 1176 and SCA 18 to the Senate Floor for a vote.
“The proof is this: Where was the vote today? You had an opportunity to bring the Governor’s public pension reform plan to the Senate Floor, to debate it in the open and you said no. You don’t want to have a debate in public. You want to work on a secret plan behind closed doors, away from public view.
That’s the whole point of this effort to bring public pension reform to the Senate Floor. If we’re all elected to represent Californians equally and honorably, let us all have an equal seat at the table. Don’t just shut Republicans out because you don’t like what we have to say.
We need pension reform. We should have an honest debate. The public should be involved with this effort.”
Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Leader and represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties.
