More pension hearings?

We posted audios from the legislature's public pension hearings on December 1. Apparently, according to the State Worker blog of the Sacramento Bee, there will be more hearings to come.

Although the special pension committee was supposed to have concluded its work by January, …"This cannot be a two-hearing answer," said Democratic Sen. Gloria Negrete-McLeod, co-chair of the panel. A spokeswoman for Democratic Assemblyman Warren Furutani, also a co-chair, said the committee will probably end up holding at least four hearings in all "in order to get through all of the information." …

Whatever the motives of the committee, if there are more hearings, it gives UC more time to make the case that it has already dealt with its pension problem and has unique features that won't fit with the one-size-fits-all model that the governor is proposing for all state and local pension plans.

How can one argue against the idea of More?
