Governor Rauner Statement on Pension Reform Legislation, Jan. 21, 2016

CHICAGO –(ENEWSPF)–January 21, 2016.   The following statement can be attributed to Lance Trover, communications director for the Governor’s Office:

“Administration lawyers have spent weeks negotiating the best possible pension reform language with members of Senator Cullerton’s staff.

“Central to the Cullerton model is that future salary increases are part of the employee election, and that to ensure the proposal passes Constitutional muster current law must be changed to make the employee’s election permanent. On that core principal, the Governor’s legal team and the President’s legal team have agreed, and this is the model that the Governor and Republican leaders endorsed today.

“We hope the Senate President still supports this agreed upon model, originally developed by his office. If he no longer supports it, we urge him to immediately introduce new pension reform legislation that he thinks will be approved by the Supreme Court, and the governor will be open to considering it. Now is the time to act.”
