By now you've seen the billboards. We are asking the Illinois legislature to address the pension crisis that is breaking the state budget and causing a financial meltdown in our state. We need your help to spread the word: "Pension Reform First."
It's clear. Our current pension program is unsustainable and it is not only bankrupting our state but it's also costing YOU. Why? Because right now, Illinois has $140 BILLION in retirement-related obligations; pensions account for $85 Billion of that debt. Ultimately, YOU are going to pay - through tax increases, cuts to critical social services, not to mention the possibility of an insolvent pension system.
The Fall veto session is approaching. We must urge lawmakers to put "Pension Reform First" and enact REAL reform. The clock is ticking. Here's how you can help:
