Quinn Push Lawmakers To Go All The Way On Pension Reform


Governor Pat Quinn is urging lawmakers to avoid half-measures during next week's special session on pension reform.

 

Quinn wants the legislature to adopt a bill that would make pension changes for state workers, lawmakers and teachers.

 

Teachers were intentionally left off a bill that cleared the Senate in the spring out of concerns that controversial changes to their pensions would kill the chances to reach a deal on other parts of pension reform.

 

Quinn says the state's unfunded pension liability is growing by millions of dollars each day, and lawmakers have to stop delaying and start acting on the problem.
