WHAT: Illinois state Reps. Tom Morrison and Jeanne Ives, along with state Sen. Jim Oberweis, will be joined Monday at a press conference with other reform-minded legislators to show a path forward on pension reform that is constitutional, would immediately cut Illinois’ $100 billion unfunded pension liability by nearly half, and would protect the benefits earned to date by current government workers.

In advance of the special session, these reform-minded lawmakers seek to demonstrate how Illinois could solve its pension crisis once and for all with a positive solution.
