Governor Quinn: Time for Lawmakers to Work Together Again

By Metro Source

Chicago, IL -- Governor Pat Quinn says now that the election is over, it's time for lawmakers to put politics aside and get busy on issues that matter most.  "There's no such thing as democratic or republican jobs.  They're American jobs, and I think we have to get to that spirit.  The election's over now and it's time for us to work together", said Quinn.  

Quinn wants lawmakers to tackle pension before January 9th, when the new general assembly will be sworn in. He promised to start a grassroots campaign for pension reform back in August when lawmakers failed to get the job done in special but, he hasn't made good on that effort. It may not be necessary if they're planning to pass a reform package during veto or lame duck sessions.
