Governor Pat Quinn and legislative leaders will keep talking, but they remain divided on the best way to tackle pension reform.
Senate President John Cullerton wants to deal with changes to state employee and lawmaker pensions first, and leave the more complicated issue of teacher pensions for later.
The Republican leaders in the House and Senate reportedly agree with the Cullerton plan. But Quinn and House Speaker Mike Madigan say the legislature must tackle teacher pensions and address the question of shifting their cost back to local school districts.
Another meeting will take place in about two weeks.
