With a deadline to reach a deal on pension reform looming, Governor Pat Quinn says there will be consequences if no deal is reached. He believes state lawmakers have already taken too long to hammer out a deal.
Quinn hasn't said what those consequences would be. The governor wants a deal on pension reform in place by July 9th. The House and Senate each passed their own versions of pension reform, but they haven't reached a compromise to send to the governor. The state has a 98-billion dollar pension shortfall.
