Lacy Construction has a noncontributory, defined benefit pension plan. At December 31, 2018, Lacy received the following information:

Projected Benefit Obligation ($ in millions)
Balance, January 1 $ 760
Service cost 100
Prior service cost 52
Interest cost(5.0%) 38

Plan Assets ($ in millions)
Balance, January 1 $ 630
Actual return on plan assets 65

The expected long-term rate of return on plan assets was 10%. There were no AOCI balances related to pensions on January 1, 2018. At the end of 2018, Lacy amended the pension formula creating a prior service cost of $52 million.

1. Determine Lacy's pension expense for 2018.
2. Prepare the journal entry(s) to record Lacy’s pension expense, gains or losses, prior service cost, funding, and payment of retiree benefits for 2018.
