State government should stay out of private pension plans, according to Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan.

Hogan, in an interview, was critical of a task force convened by Gov. Martin J. O’Malley to look at the issue of retirement security for private sector employees. That task force, led by former Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, began meeting this month and is expected to consider recommendations that could include mandating private companies to offer retirement plans to employees or the creation of a state pension plan for private sector workers.

“I can’t imagine anyone who would be worse at putting together a pension system than the state of Maryland and interfering with private pension plans is a bad idea,” Hogan said.
