Pension Reform Only Part Of Quinn's State Of The State Speech


While Governor Pat Quinn continues to urge lawmakers to take action on pensions, it was not the dominant issue in his annual State of the State speech. 

 

Instead, Quinn offered a wide-ranging list of ideas for the coming year… urging the legislature to approve a road construction bill, legalize same-sex marriage, adopt an assault weapons ban, and allow Illinoisans to vote in primaries without declaring party preference. 

 

Quinn did warn that unfunded pensions still threaten to drain dollars needed for other state priorities, but did not spell out any new ideas for resolving the crisis.
