Hammond: McGee is the right person for the job


AUSTIN, TX— The following statement is from Bill Hammond, CEO, Texas Association of Business:

“I can’t think of another candidate more qualified than Josh McGee to preside over the State Pension Review Board,” said Texas Association of Business CEO Bill Hammond.  “The board is in charge of making sure our state and local retirement plans are actuarially sound.  I know that McGee has pledged to do just that.  I believe it is critical for these retirement plans to be able to meet all obligations without draining the treasuries of our state and local governments.  Doing that hurts taxpayers, retirees and the economy.  I believe Josh McGee is the right person to take on that challenge.”
