Statement from Governor Pat Quinn Regarding Pension Reform Progress

SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today gave the following statement:

"I’m encouraged by the positive steps recently taken by the Illinois General Assembly toward comprehensive pension reform.

"In the past few weeks, the Illinois House has passed three pension reform bills, culminating with today’s major cost-saving measure, which reforms the Cost of Living Adjustment factor.

"In addition, yesterday's votes in the Illinois Senate indicate that there is support for pension reform.

"There's much more work to do, but I'm pleased to see progress being made.

"I will continue working with the leaders and members of both houses and both parties to get comprehensive pension reform legislation on my desk so that I can sign it into law.”
