Rutherford Opposes Pension Reform Plan


State Treasurer… and GOP candidate for governor… Dan Rutherford is coming out against the pension reform plan that goes before lawmakers this week. 

 

Rutherford says in a statement that he doesn’t believe the current proposal would stand up to a court challenge.  He says changes to pensions can be made if enough “consideration” is given to workers in exchange for benefits that are lost, but Rutherford says this bill fails to do that. 

 

Another Republican for governor, Bruce Rauner, has also come out against the bill… but he says it doesn’t do enough to restrict pension benefits for public sector workers.
