From campaign website http://stefanoforsenate.com/issue/government-reform/ :Pat led the fight to change the pension system in PA which was enacted in 2016. He refused to take a pension because he knew the old pension system created a more than billion dollar crisis for the taxpayers of Pennsylvania. Now because of leaders like Pat, Pennsylvania has one of the most taxpayer friendly pension plans in the nation
