Lawmakers & Unions React to Quinn's Plan


Governor Pat Quinn's pension proposal is getting a firm ``no'' from major Illinois unions. The ``We Are One Illinois'' labor coalition calls his proposal unconstitutional and unfair to workers. The group said yesterday that Quinn has made it much harder to work out a solution that public-employee unions can support.

 

Republican leaders in the Illinois Legislature say Governor Pat Quinn's plan to overhaul the pension system has some good points but they're concerned about the idea of shifting some pension costs from the state to school districts. The leaders say that could cost local schools about $1 billion a year.
