This month’s edition looks at Utah’s new school grading policy and features an op-ed by Dan Liljenquist on the need for states to follow Utah’s lead and engage in serious pension reform.

Writes Liljenquist:

Utah led the way in 2010 with pension reform that addressed long-term, structural issues. There were three main objectives in getting to meaningful, sustainable pension reform: (1) to ensure, as far as possible, that pension obligations already incurred are fulfilled, (2) to reduce and eventually eliminate pension related insolvency risk and (3) to develop new retirement options that are affordable, portable and facilitate retirement security.
