PEPTA to be Reintroduced; Opposition Letters Needed to Congressional Delegations
June 15, 2018 – Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has written to members of the U.S. House of Representatives, inviting them to cosponsor the Public Employee Pension Transparency Act (PEPTA), which he plans to again reintroduce this Congress.
There are a number of legislative vehicles under development on which PEPTA could potentially be added. Thus, letters to your delegation are needed, urging them not to co-sponsor the bill or allow it to be included in any legislation under consideration.
A sample letter to tailor to your system can be found here. A joint letter from a broad array of national associations is also under development, which could also be shared with your delegation when finalized.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need additional information!
