Quinn Says Pensions Payments Could Overshadow Funds for Education


Some pain now… or more pain later.

 

Those are the choices being laid out by Governor Pat Quinn as he tries to ramp up pressure on state lawmakers to take action on the state’s pension crisis.

 

Quinn says a new analysis shows that unless reforms are implemented, the state will soon spend more on pension costs than it does on education, forcing steep budget cuts to schools.

 

Quinn has called lawmakers back into special session on August 17th and is pushing them to pass measures, including one that would pass the state’s share of teacher pension costs back onto local districts.
