House Fails to Pass Pension Reform Before End of Lame Duck Session


Despite Governor Pat Quinn’s plea for immediate action, the Illinois General Assembly has once again failed to adopt any kind of plan to address the state’s growing public pension crisis.

 

A bill that would have scaled back cost-of-living increases for current and future retirees was never called for a vote in the full House, and a last-minute attempt to hand the problem off to a new appointed Pension Review Commission also stalled.

 

Now the pension mess is thrown into the laps of the new legislature, which will be sworn in later today.
