West Virginia Tackling Retiree Liability

In a great first step toward fiscal responsibility for the Mountain State, the WV Senate Finance Committee is working on a solution to the state's $8 billion unfunded liability for retiring state employees.

According to Senate Finance Chairman Walt Helmick the solution will demand a multi-pronged approach.  Chairman Helmick said:
