General Fund exhausts Treasury’s $750 million loan

State Treasurer Joe Torsella announced Wednesday afternoon that the General Fund—the state’s so-called largest checkbook—has exhausted a $750 million loan Treasury issued earlier this month from its Short Term Investment Pool to keep the fund above a zero balance.

 

The loan, which was released in full on Tuesday, must be paid back by next Wednesday.

Gov. Wolf, Torsella repeat call for state pension boards to reduce fees, move to more passive investment strategy

Gov. Tom Wolf and Treasurer Joe Torsella Monday doubled-down on their call for the State Employees’ Retirement System and the Public School Employees’ Retirement System to reduce their management fees, move to a more passive investment model, and increase savings opportunities.

 

The call comes on the heels of the Wolf administration combining three funds into one Treasury-managed fund and the Treasury putting all public equity investments into a passive investment model and an April 13 letter to the systems encouraging to adopt similar reforms.
