Gov. Pat Quinn says details of a so-called grassroots campaign to rally support for an overhaul of Illinois' pension system won't come until after next month's election.
Quinn has been promising since the summer to take his case for pension reform directly to the people, but has so far not offered any specifics on the idea.
Lawmakers have failed to come up with a plan to deal with the roughly $85 billion pension funding gap, which is the worst of any state in the country.
Legislators couldn't agree on an approach during an August special session and they won't meet again until after the Nov. election.
