Governor Quinn Says Pension Overhaul Goal Still Realistic
Quinn said Thursday that he remains optimistic that there'll be a solution in the lame duck session next month. It ends on Jan. 9 when new lawmakers are sworn in.
The governor hasn't been forthcoming with any plans or details beyond saying he's talking with lawmakers. His spokeswoman Brooke Anderson on Thursday said Quinn has "daily" conversations with top legislators on the issue. Earlier this week, lawmakers frustrated with inaction came up with their own proposal.
