Lawmakers To Vote on Pension Reform Plan

The stakes are high as lawmakers return to Springfield today for what is expected to be a one-day special legislative session.


Governor Pat Quinn calls today’s scheduled vote on a pension reform plan “the most important fiscal vote that will ever be taken by the General Assembly in [his] lifetime.”


But public sector unions and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford say the bill is unconstitutional.


And Bruce Rauner… who, like Rutherford, is running for governor… says the bill doesn’t do enough to address the state’s growing pension crisis.
