Ethics complaint accuses Boston Consulting Group, William Penn Foundation of violating lobbying code
"This complaint is fundamentally about the public understanding that the controversial plan by the Boston Consulting Group was funded by narrow private interests with a specific agenda," said Parents United co-founder Gerald Wright in a press release. "They have been allowed unprecedented access to information and data denied to the public, and they have had unprecedented access to lobby top decisionmakers without ever identifying as lobbyists."
BCG and William Penn denied the allegations.
Editorial: Gov. Corbett to the rescue? Not on pension reform
05, 2012, 5:55
It's a bird. It’s a plane. It’s ... another government report telling Pennsylvanians what they already know: We have $41 billion in public pension obligations, and it’s scary.
They are aware that the stock market has not been kind in the last decade and returns have been sub-par. And some also are aware that under Gov. Ed Rendell, school districts and the state were allowed to underfund or even skip their pension payments.
We all understand the mistakes, but the Keystone Pension Report that was released last week with much fanfare from Corbett’s budget office did nothing to further the debate on what to do about the crisis.
