Governor Pat Quinn’s push for pension reform is now focused on kids.
The governor’s office has released a new online video that says pension reform is needed because the soaring cost of unfunded liabilities is draining money from public school funding, early childhood education, and college tuition grants. Quinn’s office says the video features kids taking part in a focus group about breakfast cereal… which then turns into a serious discussion about pensions.
The press release says when the kids in the video realize their voices aren’t being heard, they hire a lobbyist. You can see the video at ThisIsMyIllinois.com.
