SPRINGFIELD – March 24, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement on the passage of Senate Bill 1946 by the House of Representatives:
“I applaud the Illinois House of Representatives for voting in favor of public pension reform. I am a longtime advocate for pension reform and believe it is crucial for our state to get its public pension costs under control to help save Illinois taxpayers’ money now and in the future. The proposed pension reform will stabilize the system, protect current state employees and provide attractive pension benefits to future state workers.  I look forward to the Illinois Senate taking up this important issue and making pension reform a reality in Illinois.”
