Michigan's Pension System

Michigan's pension system is to be looked at again. The Michigan Supreme Court will determine if the law is constitutional. 

In 2011, the law was changed and ordered state employees to start contributing 4% of their income to get full pension benefits or switch to a 401(K). In August, the unions sued and asked the Supreme Court to consider the case arguing the Civil Service Commission is the only one who can make or change the law regarding state employee compensation. The Supreme Court issued  the order on Wednesday to take up the challenge. An argument date hasn't been set yet.
