Governor Parnell, I hope you will reconsider your position on Senate Bill 121. SB 121 is not a going back to the old defined benefit system. Instead, SB 121 is a compromise that provides retirement security. Retirement security is extremely important to bring the best and brightest people to the state.This will be at no additional cost to the state or other employers.

If we do not pass this bill, Alaska will lose its best and brightest because they will not be able to afford to continue working in Alaska.

Thank you.
