House Approves Madigan Pension Plan; Unions Still Seek Alternative With Cullerton


The Illinois House has passed a pension reform plan backed by Speaker Mike Madigan, but the workers who would be most directly affected are stepping up their efforts to find an alternative.

 

Governor Pat Quinn calls the Madigan plan the most significant step yet to stabilize the state's finances.  But the "We Are One" coalition of public sector unions insists Madigan's proposal is unconstitutional and will only worsen the state's fiscal problems.

 

The unions have been in talks with Senate President John Cullerton in hopes of crafting an alternative that can win legislative support and survive any legal challenges.
