GOP candidate for Secretary of State, Knute Buehler presented his plan for reforms to the "PERs" system, a topic that he believes will be in the forefront during the November election.

 

Buehler says the way the system runs now,  it's just a matter of time before the state will implode from the pay-out responsibility to retired employees on the PERs system:  "With PERs, the comparison is like a category 5 hurricane off the Oregon coast.  And we're starting to feel the winds blow. And some of the damage is already occurring. And it's not if this is going to hit, it's just how much damage is going to occur when this comes on shore."

 

He's proposing eliminating tax refunds for out of state residents, the practice of double dipping, after someone retires and capping the cost of living adjustments to the first $24,000 of benefits.

 

Buehler says his proposal will batten down the hatches to decrease the damage.
