Our view: Forum highlights pension reform
Pension reform continues to be a hot issue across the country, particularly in Illinois where the Legislature is expected to deal with the matter in a special session on Aug. 17.
We all are stakeholders in pension reform, whether you're a teacher, a DMV employee, or a private-sector taxpayer. How Illinois chooses to get itself out of its $83 billion pension liability will affect us all.
In addition to the news coverage we and other media outlets have been providing, there's a good opportunity to get a better understanding of the complex issues at an upcoming forum to be held Tuesday at McHenry County College.
