Legislative Session Ends With No Pension Reform

It’s the end of the session, with no deal on pensions.


Illinois lawmakers adjourned the spring session without a vote on a pension reform plan, despite the fact that the bill had been watered down in recent days to attract more Republican support.


The revised bill, which was handed over to House GOP leader Tom Cross to sponsor, was shelved when House Speaker Mike Madigan announced his opposition to it and Democratic support for the bill evaporated.


Governor Pat Quinn indicated he would call lawmakers back this summer for a special session to continue work on the issue.
