SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Taxpayers in Simi Valley and Ventura could be off the hook for paying more than $100,000 a year extra for the pension of a former local police official whose projected benefits soared after working a year as police chief of Bell at a salary of $457,000.

Legislation to hold harmless the former employers of extravagantly paid City of Bell officials was included Thursday in a package of bills backed by legislative leaders in response to the scandal.
