Nekritz: Pension reform might wait until lame duck session

[From the Daily Herald]

Illinois state Rep. Elaine Nekritz doesn’t expect lawmakers to act on pension reform until after the Nov. 6 general election, though Gov. Pat Quinn said they should be ready to return to Springfield this summer to work on the contentious issue.

“It’s not ideal,” Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat and a member of the governor’s pension reform committee, said of the prospect of politics delaying the issue until after the election.

However, “I feel that on May 30, we were so close to having a real piece of legislation. And so, if it gets done in a lame-duck session … it will get done because it’s the right thing to get done,” she told the Daily Herald editorial board.
