Quinn’s pension reform campaign pushed back
CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn has again pushed back the timeline for when he’ll reveal his so-called grassroots campaign to rally support for an overhaul of Illinois’ pension system.
Lawmakers have failed to come up with a plan to deal with the roughly $85 billion pension funding gap, which is the worst of any state in the country. Legislators couldn’t agree on an approach during an August special session and they won’t meet again until after the November election.
Quinn has said he’ll push forward with a grass-roots campaign to win public support. He initially said more details would come in September but has pushed that back several times. The Chicago Democrat says he’ll now wait until after Nov. 6.
