As lawmakers head back to Springfield for a special session on pensions, public sector unions are pushing for a House vote on their preferred plan.
The unions negotiated a pension proposal with Senate President John Cullerton.
It saves less money than an alternate plan from House Speaker Mike Madigan… but the unions say their plan is more likely to survive a court challenge.
However, Madigan has refused to call the bill for a vote in the House.
More than two dozen lawmakers… and Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka… have sent a letter to Madigan asking him to let the House consider the Cullerton proposal.
