>>Union Leaders Gearing Up For Pension Fight
(Springfield, IL) -- State employee unions are gearing up for a court fight over the new pension reform bill. A coalition of state unions called "We Are One Illinois" is urging Governor Quinn not to sign the bill, something he has promised to do. The law doesn't go into effect until next June, but court challenges can be filed before then. Union leaders argue that the law is unconstitutional because it makes changes to earlier promises that state workers were given regarding their retirement accounts.

>>Lawmakers Approve Historic Pension Overhaul
(Springfield, IL) -- Many lawmakers are celebrating what they consider a historic overhaul of the government worker pension system in Illinois. But before Governor Quinn can sign the bill, opponents are vowing to go to court to overturn the new law. The measure raises the retirement age for some workers, scales back cost-of-living increases, and gives some workers the chance to join a four-oh-one-K-style plan. Unions are challenging that the law is unconstitutional because it cuts back on some earlier guaranteed retirement benefits.
