House Rejects Pension Reform Amendments


Illinois House members have resoundingly rejected a series of amendments put forward by House Speaker Mike Madigan on the issue of pension reform.

 

Even Madigan’s own Democrats would not back the proposals, ranging from raising the retirement age to eliminating cost-of-living increases for retirees.

 

None of Madigan’s four amendments got more than five “yes” votes.

 

And Republicans refused to vote on the measures at all, saying that Madigan’s tactic was a waste of time.
