Quinn Signs Pension Reform Into Law; Unions Vow To Sue


Pension reform is now the law… and soon it will be the subject of a lawsuit. 

 

Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill almost as soon as it reached his desk.  Quinn says the $160 billion plan is a vital part of fixing Illinois’s fiscal crisis… and he believes the courts will uphold it for that reason. 

 

But public sector unions say no amount of savings trumps the state constitution… and they say they are preparing a suit that will seek to overturn the new law because it unfairly reduces current and future pension benefits.
