Cullerton Pension Reform Plan Passes Committee, Faces Opposition


A Senate committee has approved the latest pension reform plan to surface at the Capitol.

 

That plan crafted by Senate President John Cullerton and public sector unions was approved on a strict party line vote, with Democrats voting in favor and Republicans opposed.

 

At least one group is already threatening to sue if the bill passes.

 

The Illinois Retired Teachers Association says this plan… like other pension reform proposals… violates the state constitution, which prohibits a diminishment in pension benefits.
