Illinois House Committee OKs Pension Commission
Quinn and the legislation's sponsor offered a last-ditch effort Tuesday afternoon that contains the extra-legislative commission. A House committee approved the measure 7-2 after a House bill crumbled in the last hours of the Legislature's lame-duck session.
The change would create an eight-member commission to come up with recommendations by April 30. It could enact those reforms with majority of five votes unless overturned by the Legislature. Quinn likened the panel to a federal commission formed to close military bases or the former Compensation Review Board that determined lawmakers' salaries.
