Governor Quinn Urges Republicans to Act on Pension Reform


A day after being heckled by union employees during Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair, Governor Pat Quinn urges republican lawmakers during Republican Day to “rise to the occasion to pass comprehensive pension reform” for the state.

 

In a statement released Thursday Quinn says that a measure similar to what Republicans supported at the end of the spring legislative session has been introduced by Rep. Elaine Nekritz.

 

That measure would gradually shift teacher pensions from the state to local districts over 12 years. The Governor says inaction on pension reform is the greatest threat to property taxpayers.

 

Quinn called lawmakers to a special session Friday to act on pension reform.

 

The House was already scheduled for a Friday session to vote on possible expulsion of Representative Derrick Smith who is accused of accepting a bribe.
