CAPE MAY — Proposed state legislation introduced last week could eliminate pensions for both present and future lifeguards. 

Bill S-2085, which is pending before the state Senate, says: “Current statutes provide for the establishment of a pension fund for members of the lifeguard force of cities of the fourth class, which are seaside or summer resort cities bordering on the Atlantic Ocean.
