3 ballot propositions OK'd in Phoenix special election

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Voters decided to overhaul Phoenix's ailing employee-pension system, potentially saving roughly $600 million over 25 years.

Early results show that voters overwhelmingly voted "Yes" on all three propositions.

Proposition 201 reforms the city's retirement system for new employees excluding police officers, firefighters and elected officials. The changes would raise the retirement age and require employees to contribute more toward their pensions.

Proposition 202 allows the city to be more aggressive in how it invests pension funds.

Proposition 300 allows private security guards to issue civil citations to mass-transit riders. Currently, only police officers and their assistants can cite passengers.
