Gov Quinn Comments on Passage of Historic Pension Reform Bill

SPRINGFIELD – March 24, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement on the passage of Senate Bill 1946:

“The General Assembly tonight took an important and vital step toward rescuing Illinois from fiscal calamity by passing public pension reform. The legislation approved by the General Assembly will stabilize the public pension system, protect current state employees and provide attractive pension benefits to future state workers. I congratulate House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton for their leadership on this crucial issue. I also thank members of the General Assembly for their bi-partisan support and for bringing in a new era of greater fiscal responsibility and accountability to Illinois. I look forward to signing this important bill into law.”
