Illinois voters this fall will be asked whether to make it tougher for state and local governments to sweeten public employee pensions under a measure lawmakers approved Thursday.
The proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution now goes on the November ballot following the Senate’s 51-2 vote. The House previously approved the measure, sponsored by Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton, both Chicago Democrats.
I received my copy of this proposed new amendment and it sounds like a good deal. While out today I did see a sign against it. I realize the unions will fight this tooth and nail.
So anyone else think this is a good move?
