Senate Approves Cullerton-Union Pension Plan


The Illinois Senate has approved a pension reform plan championed by Senate President John Cullerton and public sector unions, leaving lawmakers with a choice between two plans, each championed by one of the top two Democrats in the General Assembly.

 

Cullerton and the unions say their plan is better, even though it saves less money than a plan put forward by House Speaker Mike Madigan, because it has a better chance of surviving a court challenge. Madigan's plan has cleared the House, but neither bill has a certain future in the opposite chamber.
