Pension Showdown In Springfield Starts Today

Both supporters and opponents of the proposed pension reform deal are in Springfield today as the state Legislature returns to tackle the crisis.  Public employee unions are continuing their lobbying efforts against the deal, but many business and legislative leaders are trying to round up support.  The four legislative leaders hammered out a bill last week to address the state's 100-billion dollar pension debt.  The bill includes a reduction in cost-of-living adjustments, increases the retirement age, and creates an optional private retirement plan.
