State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend says lawmakers are choosing to leave a massive deficit in the Public Employees Retirement System unaddressed for another year; and she's frustrated. It was a discussion that never happened. This session, State Senator Chris Telfer says many PERs reform bills died in committee without even a public hearing being scheduled. She's frustrated with the lack of action this session on a couple of big issues: "We aren't doing a whole lot to create jobs or to fix PERs." An important deadline for scheduling bills came and went on Friday. Telfer says ignoring the problem is irresponsible and pretending that it doesn't exist is not going to make things any better.  Meantime, on the other side, the Director of the Oregon State Firefighters Council, Bob Livingston says people who are criticizing the system have painted a lopsided and exaggerated picture of the problem.
