Rep Elaine Nekritz (D), House Pension Cmte Chair
"The governor's actions today do nothing to move us toward a solution to our
pension crisis and only serve as an unnecessary distraction. Each of the
conference committee members is committed to a compromise in the near future
that addresses this problem in a meaningful way. Our work will continue
unimpeded. We would urge the governor to join us as we push to the finish line
to really do what is right for Illinois."
