"Bell pensions and municipal corruption: what are the options for reform?"

Here is an audio link to an interview I did on the local NPR station about the scandal in the City of Bell and pension reform:

From the KPCC website:

"Bell citizens are up in arms over the news that city leaders are pulling exorbitant salaries – up to $800,000 a year – and that resulting pensions for some officials could reach $600,000 a year. But such outrageous salaries for public employees aren’t illegal in California. The key to reforming city pensions, say experts, is citizen involvement – but are there legislative options, perhaps at the state level, to prevent runaway salaries for local officials?
