Colorado Governor Joins Lawsuit to Unlock Confidential Pension Info
Gov. John Hickenlooper has filed a brief in support of Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton’s lawsuit seeking information about employee benefits in the state’s pension system.
The Democratic governor’s brief asks the Colorado Supreme Court to hear Stapleton’s lawsuit after the Court of Appeals ruled against Stapleton in August.
Stapleton, a Republican, wants non-identifying information about the top 20 percent of the pension’s beneficiaries and their annual retirement benefit. He argues the information will help him to assess the health of the state pension’s program.
The Public Employees Retirement Association says the information is confidential.
