Quinn lays out agenda for remaining spring legislative session

With 11 days left until the spring state legislative session draws to a close, Gov. Pat Quinn again on Monday urged the Illinois General Assembly to pass “comprehensive pension reform,” but he left it to legislators to sort out the specific elements of the reforms.

“All the legislators – every one of them – they campaigned on pension reform,” Quinn said at a press conference following his speech at the City Club of Chicago. “This is their moment – their hour in history to pass something comprehensive.”
