Public School Employee Pension Adjustments 

Recently passed legislation includes a cost shift from employers to employees in the state’s school pension fund. These shifts will save taxpayers $312 million in the first year, according to a state fiscal analysis.[96] Under Proposal 2, any changes in retirement benefits would likely be negotiated away in collective bargaining. The American Federation of Teachers-Michigan and the Michigan Education Association, in fact, have already filed legal challenges to the legislation.[97]
