Pension Reform On The Table

Lawmakers are headed back to Springfield this week to tackle the pension problem.  They still don’t have a deal and so far, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate aren’t willing to compromise on how to get the 97-billion-dollar liability under control.  Governor Quinn has suggested they establish a conference committee, which would allow five members of the House and five from the Senate work out a fix.  House Speaker Michael Madigan apparently doesn’t like the idea and it appears the House version of pension reform might get another vote in the Senate this week.
