Governor Quinn Won't Testify Before Pension Committee
Gov. Pat Quinn says he will not testify before a bipartisan panel Monday in Springfield. The governor told reporters today that staff from his budget office would attend instead.
The committee is tasked with finding a solution to the state's nearly $100 billion pension problem. They had invited Quinn to testify.
The group was formed last month since lawmakers remained at odds over two reform plans.
The governor is giving the panel a Tuesday deadline to come up with a fix. Committee members said that deadline is irresponsible.
