New Jersey’s newly established Pension and Benefit Study Commission is seeking public comments and suggestions regarding the panel’s mission of “making the system sustainable for taxpayers and retirees”.

The panel was created by Chris Christie last month to brainstorm cost-cutting and reform ideas to implement into the state’s pension system.
More details from the Absury Park Press:
If you’re interested in providing Gov. Chris Christie with some feedback on how to handle New Jersey’s underfunded public employee pension systems, now is your chance.
The state Department of the Treasury has created a web page and a comments form for the newly formed New Jersey Pension and Health Benefit Study Commission.
That nine-member commission was appointed by Christie in August and tasked with providing recommendations for reforming the system, which has been chronically underfunded by the state for years.
The new web page features short biographies of the nine commission members, a widget that takes viewers to a page on which they can submit feedback and a link to Executive Order 161, which established the commission.
