Pension Reform Talks Could Go Beyond Today's Special Session


Illinois lawmakers will make another try at passing pension reform during today’s special session… but it’s likely to be July before a deal is approved.

 

The game plan now among legislative leaders is to appoint a “conference committee” of lawmakers from both chambers and both parties to work out a compromise from the various competing pension proposals.

 

The legislature would then come back in July for a final vote.

 

Governor Pat Quinn wants to bring them back in early July… which would also allow for any follow-up votes on concealed carry legislation if necessary.

 

But legislative leaders say the pension deal may not be done that soon.
