We Are One – Illinois | Save the Dates: January 3 and 4 at the State Capitol in Springfield

3 Dec

Political observers predict the Illinois General Assembly and Governor Quinn will try again to ram unfair and unconstitutional pension cuts through the General Assembly in early January. This could happen during “lame duck” session – so called because nearly three dozen lame duck lawmakers will be leaving public service and thus may never answer to the voters again.

Our coalition proposed a framework in August for true reform that is fair, constitutional and addresses the real problem—the state’s failure to meet its obligations over time. We remain ready to sit down and work with anyone toward serious, fair-minded solutions. In the meantime, we have to stay vigilant and stand ready for action.

The coalition is preparing for possible days of action at the State Capitol in Springfield on Thursday, January 3, and Friday, January 4. More information will be shared with our supporters in the near future. Please save the dates.
