Gov. Pat Quinn says he plans to meet with legislative leaders this week in hopes of making headway on public pension reform. The governor thinks they're close to getting a solution on pension reforms, and says the sooner, the better. Democrat State Senator Bill Haine of Alton (pictured, top) agrees.
Republican Sam McCann of Carlinville (pictured, bottom) is not so sure.
At issue is proposed funding changes that would shift some of the burden away from the state.
