Evaluate state pension system for growing unfunded liability

New Jersey currently carries a $43 billion unfunded pension liability. This has been created almost entirely by the state's failure to make its annual contributions. Eleven years ago, Phil Murphy chaired the first commission to evaluate the state's pension system in light of a growing unfunded liability. One of our primary recommendations was that the state must meet its funding obligations going forward. Eleven years later, the problem has only grown worse. We must get our pension funds back on track to solvency--starting with the state living up to its commitments. As Phil said in 2005, when Governor Codey appointed him to chair an effort to address our pension problems, "a constitutional amendment guaranteeing state pension contributions should be part of the solution--but the solution must be comprehensive and ensure a reasonable payment schedule."
