Quinn Warns of Consequences Over Missed Pension Reform Deadline


Governor Pat Quinn is threatening consequences for lawmakers if they don’t send him a pension reform plan today.

 

He isn’t saying what those consequences might be, but one of the rumors at the Capitol is that Quinn could block a pending appropriations bill… the one that contains the money for legislative salaries.

 

A bipartisan committee looking at pension reform says it will not meet Quinn’s deadline.

 

Committee members ripped Quinn during a Springfield hearing Monday, blasting him for declining the committee’s invitation to appear before them and accusing him of playing politics and making it harder to reach consensus.
