Quinn unhappy pensions may wait until next year
SPRINGFIELD – The chances of quick action on Illinois’ pension problems are growing slimmer.
Gov. Pat Quinn said Friday that he believes a pension overhaul can be passed by the end of the legislative session, which isn’t until January. The Democratic governor wants action “as soon as possible,” but nothing in his remarks suggested he expects that to happen this fall.
“I’m optimistic we will, by the end of this legislative session, get fundamental pension reform. It’s absolutely imperative for the people of Illinois, for the common good,” Quinn said after an appearance in Chicago.
