Follow Franks’ lead

To the Editor:

I was happy to see your March 10 editorial supporting state Rep. Jack Franks’ efforts to push the legislature to work only on the pension and budget crisis facing the state of Illinois.

Rep. Franks has publicly asked Gov. Quinn and the Speaker of the House to suspend all other legislative matters and call a special session of the Legislature whose sole focus would be those two items.

Rep. Franks is the unique public official who understands that until we solve these two most pressing issues, nothing else the state does matters. He has his priorities in order. Instead of working on social issues, the state Legislature needs to change its focus and follow Rep. Franks’ lead.
