LOS ANGELES — California Sen. Kevin De Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, introduced a bill he said would deter corrupt officials from receiving bloated pensions.

The bill aims to block the ex-administrator of the city of Vernon, Calif., from regaining his pension after payments were cut to $115,000 a year from about $500,000 by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System, the state’s largest employee pension fund. The measure also could affect former officials of Bell, another LA County city tainted by corruption convictions. The legislation is supported by Assembly Speaker John Perez, a Los Angeles democrat, who like De Leon, represents Vernon.
