Illinois voters differ on pension amendment
With Illinois officials divided over what to do about state pensions, voters on Tuesday get to tackle the issue — or at least a part of it.
A proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution would make it more difficult for officials to improve retirement benefits for public employees.
Basically, the amendment would require a three-fifths vote instead of a simple majority for any pension increase. To the consternation of public employee unions, cutting benefits would still require just a simple majority.
