Correction

May 17, 2000

The cost to the county of changing the pension earnings cap for retired Howard County police and firefighters was misstated in an article Tuesday in the Howard County edition of The Sun. A bill before the County Council estimates it would cost $25,000 to $45,000 a year to allow nine retirees the option of eliminating the cap in return for reducing their pensions from two-thirds to half their former full-time pay.

The Sun regrets the error.
