Quinn Will Rely On ''Electronic Democracy'' To Push Pension Reform


Governor Pat Quinn says he will rely on what he calls “electronic democracy” to launch his grass-roots campaign on pension reform. 

 

While not revealing many details, Quinn says he will use the Internet and social media to rally the public and urge them to press lawmakers to fix the state’s pension crisis.

 

Quinn has pledged to take his case for pension changes directly to the public, after lawmakers failed to approve a reform plan during a special legislative session last month.  Quinn says the $85 billion unfunded pension liability is the biggest fiscal threat facing the state, and warns it will eat up funding that could otherwise go to schools and other essential services.
