Quinn Pushes For Action On Pension Reform, But Offers No Specifics

Governor Pat Quinn is pressing lawmakers to get something done to fix the state’s pension crisis… but isn’t committing to any specific plan himself. 


The governor spoke to reporters at the Capitol Tuesday morning (in comments heard live on 970 WMAY)… with just a day remaining in the current legislative session. He says that as more time goes by without a pension reform plan, the state’s unfunded liability increases by $17 million per day. 


Quinn says lawmakers must “redouble” their efforts to pass a pension reform plan, but declined to say what it should include.  Quinn says he just wants something that will reduce the unfunded liability and put the state’s pension systems on a road to solvency.
