The Eastern Shore counties created a Powerpoint presentation against the teacher pension shift. You can view it by clicking the link below.
"We, the undersigned organizations, are opposed to shifting costs for state pensions to county governments. The proposal that has been introduced in the Governor's budget would cost county governments $1.6 billion over the next five years alone. It would force counties to cut local services that residents depend on, from education to parks to arts and culture to libraries to human services to transportation. We call on the General Assembly to protect our community by opposing the shift."
