The Governor and the Legislature decide how the state spends its money, but it’s the treasurer’s job to oversee the funds in the state’s bank accounts. Treasurer Beth Pearce says the state employees pension fund has recovered well from the financial crisis, and that important changes have been made to the Teacher's Retirement System to make it more sustainable.
We'll ask Treasurer Beth Pearce about pensions, bond sales, and what the state does with unclaimed financial property.
Also on the show, we'll hear about one Vermonter's experience living with HIV in this state.
And....the latest installment of our series Dorothy's List.
