Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., would repeal part of a 1980 law that allows PBGC premiums to be counted as general revenue when it comes to balancing the federal budget. The premiums, however, are used exclusively to help the PBGC pay pension benefits in plans it has taken over from employers who get in financial trouble or go out of business.
