More Action Expected in Pension Reform Vote

With time running out, Illinois lawmakers are still scrambling to find the votes to pass a controversial pension reform plan.


The latest proposal… which would dramatically scale back cost-of-living increases for retirees and require workers to pay more toward their pension for the next couple of years… passed a House committee Monday 6-3, but there’s no word on when it may be called for a vote of the full House.


Springfield Representative Raymond Poe voted “no” in committee, saying the state caused the pension problem by underfunding, and is now trying to make workers and retirees clean up the mess.
