>>Quinn Wants Pension Vote During Veto Session
(Chicago, IL) -- A special pension committee has been working for about four months trying to strike a deal on pension reform, but they still haven't found a fix. Governor Quinn wants them to produce a bill and take a vote before they complete veto session on November 7th, but at this point it doesn't look like that's going to happen. And, he's still holding on to the notion that lawmakers shouldn't be paid until they get the job done. Quinn says the most important way to help the state's economy and build jobs is by passing a comprehensive pension plan that eliminates the state's 100-billion-dollar liability.
>>Heating Bills Expected To Go Up This Year
(Chicago, IL) -- Heating bills are expected to be about 13-percent higher this year, compared to year's past. But, the officials with the Citizen's Utility Board say people can help bring costs down by being more efficient with their energy usage.
A couple tips include lowering the thermostat, caulking windows, unplugging electrical appliances, like the coffee maker, when they're not in use, and closing the blinds on cold winter nights. More tips are available at CubEnergySaver.com.
>>Computer Scam in Quincy
(Quincy, IL) -- Police are urging people to be on the lookout for a new computer scam. Apparently someone is making calls pretending to work with a repair company for Microsoft of KBK systems. The caller convinces the victim to give them remote access into their computer but once they're in, the screen goes black. The scammer then tells the person they need to pay 450-dollars to recover the system. Someone in Quincy has fallen prey to the scheme.
>>Quinn Supports Rails and Trails in Urbana
(Urbana, IL) -- Governor Quinn says he may be interested in helping secure money to assist in a rails to trails program in Urbana. The community is interested in converting an old rail line into a 24-and-a-half mile trail that stretches from Urbana to Danville. Right now the county forest preserve is looking to convert the rails using private money, but Quinn says he'll take a close look at finding ways to help fund the project. He says the trails will make it possible for kids to get out of the house and for families to enjoy time bicycling together.
