Pension Reform Vote This Week Seen As Unlikely


Illinois lawmakers see it as increasingly unlikely that a pension reform vote will take place during the fall veto session. 

 

Even though it’s been months since Governor Pat Quinn declared pension reform the number one priority in the state… and even went so far as to try to withhold lawmaker paychecks to prove the point… a deal still hasn’t come together.  Local lawmakers say there are still too many details to be worked out, and don’t think that can happen before adjournment Thursday. 

 

The impasse raises the possibility that lawmakers could be called back to Springfield for a special session later in November or December, if a deal does come together.
