Leaders meet on pension restructuring

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Illinois’ legislative leaders met Tuesday to try to put the finishing touches on a pension restructuring plan. The Illinois House is scheduled to meet next Tuesday, so Minority Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) wants to get it done. “The situation is very fluid. However, my fear is that if we do nothing, soon Illinois will be downgraded again and again. Not acceptable,” he said.
