Prospects Shaky For This Week's Special Session On Pensions


There’s still no clear path to a consensus on pension reform. 

 

Governor Pat Quinn and legislative leaders say they’ll try again during this week's special legislative session to pass House Speaker Mike Madigan’s more stringent pension plan… even though the Senate overwhelmingly rejected Madigan’s proposal last month.  The Senate prefers a plan put forward by President John Cullerton… but Madigan has refused to call Cullerton’s bill for a vote in the House.

 

Republicans say it’s clear that the Democrats who run the legislative and executive branches are not close to an agreement to address the growing pension crisis.
