OR Gov. Cuts Retiree Benefits

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber has signed a bill cutting pension benefits for some retired government workers. Kitzhaber signed the bill without fanfare yesterday. He had previously called it a good first step, but he's pushed for even steeper cuts to retirement benefits. Kitzhaber and legislators say the state must cut retirement costs in order to boost education funding.
