(CNN) -- American taxpayers would have to pay anywhere from $329 to $2,475 annually per household for 30 years, depending on what state they live in, to remedy the crises in their public employee pensions, a new study said Wednesday.

Funding state and local public pensions has been a growing problem nationwide, and many states have taken controversial measures to solve the crisis.
