IN BRIEF: Shanor Appointed to Panel Examining Atlanta’s Public Employee Pension System

In June, Professor Charles Shanor was appointed to a panel established by the mayor to look at Atlanta’s public employee pension system. The panel is analyz­ing the pension system components to then provide options to the mayor and city council concerning the city’s fund­ing shortfall (estimated at more than $1.5 billion). Certain options would require action by the Georgia General Assembly as well as by city officials. Shanor’s background in the labor field and in federal constitutional law led to this appointment.
