The Conference Committee on the pension situation met on Thursday, June 27, 2013, in Springfield. To read testimony given by the SUAA go here, and for further analysis by the SUAA you can read this. For more on the hearing see the Illinois Issues Blog, Chicago Tribune, and Fred Klonsky’s blog.
Please note that Ralph Martire’s group, the CTBA, will be addressing the committee on July 3rd. Here is a link to the Martire plan, which is both fiscally sound and preserves our earned pensions.
