Pension committee chairman says no pension bill by July 9

The chairman of the legislative conference committee that is working to develop legislation to solve Illinois’s public pension crisis said Wednesday that it is not possible to come up with a responsible bill by the July 9 deadline set by Gov. Pat Quinn.

At the committee’s second public meeting Wednesday morning, state Sen. Kwame Raoul (D-Chicago) said actuaries will not be able to score the conference committee’s ultimate proposal by the deadline.

“There is no way to get them done by July 9,” Raoul stated at the start of the meeting.
