Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says the state legislature could take a lesson from the Chicago Blackhawks in passing pension reform. IPR’S Tony Arnold reports.
Lawmakers adjourned from Springfield without passing what many consider the biggest issue facing the state: its increasing pension obligations. So Governor Quinn called them back for a special session next week, saying they should take the two rival pension reform plans, put them on the same bill, and pass them both. He says he knows of another team that got the job done when it was needed.
