    As they plan their attack on pensions, Kentucky lawmakers are seeking input from various special interest groups.

    While this gives public employees an opportunity to make their voices heard, it also allows pension opponents to spread misinformation in an effort to reduce retirement security for Kentucky’s working people.

    Who are some of these opponents? We’ve highlighted 3 groups working against pensions in the Bluegrass State:

    Save Our Pensions
    • Shadowy special interest group run by conservative activists
    • Not aligned with groups that represent Kentucky public employees and does not represent their interests
    • Does not disclose its donors. Who’s funding Save Our Pensions?

    Retirement Security Initiative

    • Advocates for cities and states across the country to abandon pensions
    • Funded by anti-pension billionaire John Arnold
    • Led by politicians who championed pension ‘reforms’ that cost taxpayers millions

    • Convinced the Kentucky legislature to adopt a cash balance plan, instead of a pension, for public workers
    • Has received almost $10 million from anti-pension billionaire John Arnold
    • Campaigns in states across the nation to undermine traditional public pensions
