September 5, 2013 (SPRINGFIELD, Ill.) (WLS) -- After a summer of continued credit downgrades and persistent high unemployment, the bi-partisan pensions committee has nothing to show despite nearly three months of work.

At an un-related event, a self-described "anxious" Governor Pat Quinn worried that the Illinois House/Senate conference committee on pension reform was taking so much time.

"I do think it's imperative that they get their work finished, hopefully as soon as possible," Gov. Pat Quinn, (D) Illinois, said.
