House advances pension reform legislation

Posted: Updated:

Former State Trooper Jim Deeghan pleaded guilty to illegally padding his timesheet, but he gets to keep his pension. The House is moving forward with a bill aiming to change that in the future.

The House is advancing legislation to block public employees from collecting their pensions if they are convicted of certain crimes.

Deeghan is facing up to two years in prison and has to pay back $200,000 from his pension over the next six years.

The legislation would guard against pensions being paid out when that income was improperly inflated.
