A special session that was called to tackle the state's broad pension problems ended Friday with little progress being made according to one local State Representative. Dwight Kay of Glen Carbon says that a bill that passed the House doesn't accomplish anything.
Kay voted against the measure, which passed on a 54-53 vote. The legislation only addressed legislators' own pension plan, ending pensions for new legislators. The Governor wanted broader pension reforms passed, however lawmakers were unable to agree on broad-based legislation during the session.
