Rank-and-file lawmakers submit pension bill
A group of frustrated state lawmakers presented their own attempt at fixing the state’s underfunded pension crisis, setting the stage for a possible showdown during the lame-duck session in January.
House Pension Committee Chairwoman Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook, unveiled the proposal along with more than 20 colleagues on Wednesday, the last day of the fall veto session. Supporters call House Bill 6258 an attempt to jump-start much-needed reforms in the wake of inactivity on the part of legislative leaders.
“We must continue to push this issue forward and not let excuses get in the way of progress,” Nekritz said.
