Nevada's pension costs 2nd highest nationwide

At 10.3 percent of combined state and local government own-source revenue, Nevada spends more on public pensions than any other state in the nation besides Illinois.

This is according to just-released figures from the Public Plan Database — a joint venture between the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College and the Center for State and Local Government Excellence.

The National Association of State Retirement Administrators — a public pension advocacy group currently run by former Nevada PERS executive officer Dana Bilyeu — supports the Database by providing "review and assistance on the development of data models, validation of data, and development and administration of surveys."
