Lawmakers Fume Over Pension Reform

Tensions are riding high, and frustration is boiling over, as lawmakers try to find an answer to the state’s growing pension crisis.


Republican Representative Mike Bost of Murphysboro yelled and tossed papers in the air on the House floor Tuesday, as he vented anger over House Speaker Mike Madigan’s refusal to consider GOP amendments to Madigan’s pension reform bill.


And House Republican leader Tom Cross suggested Madigan was actually trying to kill pension reform, and said Madigan was to blame for the mess the state is in today.


The pension reform bill cleared a House committee Tuesday, but no one’s sure if the votes are there for approval by the full House.
