Rep. Seth Grove, R-York County, will formally unveil his plan for municipal pension reform on Monday during a Capitol news conference.
Grove has been circulating the proposal for co-sponsorship, hoping to ignite the reform debate this legislative session. His plan would affect only public safety employees at the local level.
The plan is backed by the Coalition for Sustainable Communities, which includes local elected officials and business leaders from across the commonwealth, including many of the chambers of commerce.
Collectively, municipal-level pensions have amassed an unfunded liability of nearly $7 billion. Philadelphia and Pittsburgh account for the majority of that debt.
The two state-administered pension systems have a combined unfunded liability of $47.4 billion.
Much of the legislative attention has been focused on the latter.
