Our View: State bumbles state pension fixes again
The best thing that can be said about the lame-duck session of the Illinois General Assembly is that lawmakers, at least, did no further harm.
They didn’t do anything to fix Illinois’ sinking public pension systems or dire fiscal situation, sadly. But the way things went down during the last lame-duck session two years ago – when Gov. Pat Quinn and Democratic legislators rammed through a massive, last-minute tax increase – we might just chalk up “doing no harm” as a win.
Or a tie, anyway. And that says pretty much everything that needs to be said about the sad state of governing in the Land of Lincoln.
