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

Professor Charles Shanor has been appointed to a panel established by the Mayor to look at Atlanta’s public employee pension system. The panel’s job is to analyze the pension system components and to provide options to the Mayor and City Council concerning the city’s funding shortfall (currently estimated at more than $1.5 billion). Certain options would require action by the Georgia legislature as well as by city officials. Shanor's background in the labor field as well as federal constitutional law led to this appointment.
