Governor Quinn Statement on Pension Reform

SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn released the below statement on the Illinois Senate’s failure to pass pension reform:

"The people of Illinois were let down tonight.

“Every lawmaker in the capitol knows what needs to be done.

“Senate Bill 1 is comprehensive public pension reform. It has already passed the House of Representatives and it should pass the Senate, too.

“Failure to send me a comprehensive pension reform bill hurts our economy and costs Illinois taxpayers $17 million a day.

"Senate Bill 1 gets the job done. I urge the Senate to reconsider tonight’s vote.”
