Pinching pennies? Not ousted lawmakers

"Voters probably weren't thinking about it at the time, but when they ousted Senate President Pro Tempore Robert Jubelirer, R-Blair, and Senate Majority Leader David "Chip" Brightbill, R-Lebanon, they opened the door to consolation prizes.

"As one of the longest-serving lawmakers in the General Assembly, Jubelirer will leave office in December with an estimated annual state pension of $104,067, according to the latest compensation figures supplied by the State Employees Retirement System.

"Brightbill will be eligible to collect a state pension of $72,430. "
