San Bernardino, which went into Chapter 9 bankruptcy in August, is not making its regular contribution to the California Public Employees' Retirement System (Calpers) according to a story in today's (Oct. 22) Wall Street Journal. An official told the Journal that Calpers was no different than any other creditor. But Calpers says the city's move violates state law.
