Lawmakers balk on House pension bill
The fate of a last-minute pension reform plan is in doubt after the Illinois House adjourned Monday afternoon without calling for a vote.
The House is scheduled to reconvene today, but local lawmakers are skeptical that the attempt to tackle the state’s $96 billion unfunded pension liability will be approved.
Today is the last full day of the lame-duck session. On Wednesday, the General Assembly elected in November will be sworn in. If the House approves the measure, the Senate would have to be called back into session to vote on it for it to pass.
