Poe: Pension Deal May Not Come Until October


A local lawmaker thinks it could take until the fall veto session in October before a pension reform plan is crafted.

 

And if lawmakers go without a paycheck for that long, Representative Raymond Poe says many of them will face real financial hardship.

 

But Poe says he’s doing OK despite Governor Pat Quinn’s veto of legislative pay over the pension stalemate, because a family business provides another source of income.

 

Meanwhile, Poe says he’s open to making the temporary state income tax increase permanent… if a lot of the money is earmarked toward paying down the pension debt.
