Quinn Expresses Confidence In Outcome Of Special Session On Pensions


Governor Pat Quinn says he thinks lawmakers will come together to pass pension reform during a special session this week… because they have no other choice. 

 

Quinn says the mounting unfunded pension costs are, quote, a fire bell in the night… and believes the same spirit that led to a Medicaid reform plan last spring will produce a compromise on pensions now.

 

The governor has been trying to get the legislature to agree on pension reform measures for months without success.  He did not say what may have changed that would allow a deal to be finalized during Friday's one-day special session.
