Pension “Reform” Bill All But Dead

January 8th, 2013

Crain’s Chicago Business reporter, Greg Hinz reports:

Steve Brown, the spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan, tells me that “sponsors of the bill” have determined that the votes are not there to pass it, and it will not be called for a vote. Mr. Brown adds that the speaker spoke with the governor shortly before his press conference today, and said any vote now would be strictly “symbolic.”
