Legislature limits bonds for pensions, but keeps them as potential tool

MAY 2, 2018 | by Andrew Kitchenman | ALASKA PUBLIC MEDIA

“… The Legislature has passed a measure, Senate Bill 97, to lower the amount of bonds the state could sell to reduce this unfunded pension liability. … The bonds would essentially be low-interest debt. The state could use that money to invest. If investment returns were higher than the bonds’ rate, the state would save money.”
