2012 CSG National Leadership Conference

The Fiscals Chairs forum featured an in-depth discussion of, and policy options to, one of the thorniest problems confronting state policymakers: public pensions.  As states cautiously recover from the Great Recession, one of the significant fiscal challenges they confront involves devising solutions to boost underfunded and unfunded public pension plans.  During the forum, the fiscal chairs heard from fellow state officials representing three states (Oregon, Rhode Island and California), each tackling unique public pension challenges in innovative ways.

Finance at the state and federal levels and alternatives to the gas tax are two major topics in the transportation discussion. In addition, as high-speed rail is put on the backburner elsewhere, the dream is still alive in California. This session focused on how infrastruture investment can impact the road construction industry and a company like UPS. Speakers also discussed what California has planned in high-speed rail and what it could mean for the rest of the country.
