Alberta legislature to begin spring sitting with throne speech on March 3

EDMONTON — Alberta politicians are to return to work in the legislature for the spring sitting on March 3.

The sitting is scheduled to run into the first week of June and will include the 2014-15 budget.

It begins with a speech from the throne.

The government has not announced what key legislation will be introduced during the sitting.

But Finance Minister Doug Horner says there will be bills to amend legislation on pensions for public service workers.

The province plans to tighten up pension plans to avoid problems such as the current $7.4 billion in unfunded liabilities.
