Madigan Pushes Ahead With Tougher Pension Reform Plan
There's a new wrinkle in the dispute between House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton over how to achieve pension reform. Madigan yesterday filed an amendment to the Senate's reform bill, essentially grafting the language from the House version onto
the Senate plan. Madigan's plan saves more money, but cuts benefits for retirees and raises legal questions that Cullerton's plan doesn't. This latest bill could be voted on next Tuesday, the day before Governor Quinn has called a special legislative session to deal with pension reform.
GOP Lawmakers Push to Make College More Affordable
Lawmakers are trying to make it more appealing for Illinois students to stay in state for college. A group of Republican state reps introduced the College Affordability plan, which would give families a one-thousand-dollar tax credit if their child or children attends a public university in Illinois. They also want to create a new 529 savings plan which allows families to bank up to 10-thousand-dollars every year toward higher education.
