Idaho is faring better than many states when it comes to funding its public employee pension and retiree health care systems.
A Pew Center on the States study on the widening gap between states’ assets and their obligation to fund pension systems ranks Idaho in the “needs improvement” and “solid performer” categories. Most states — 32 of them — landed in the “serious concern” category. Emilie Ritter Saunders/StateImpact Idaho
