After months with little movement on pension reform, there are now two separate proposals picking up steam… and they could be on a collision course.
House Speaker Mike Madigan’s plan sailed through the pensions committee Wednesday and could come up for a full House vote today.
But public sector unions call Madigan’s plan unconstitutional.
They are working with the other top Democrat in the legislature, Senate President John Cullerton, on a different plan that Cullerton calls “credible and constitutional.”
But so far, Cullerton is not releasing details of that plan.
