From the office of Rep. Tom Cross, Ill GOP House Leader…
After we filed bills to address some of the gross abuses being reported by the media in regard to the Chicago Pension funds, there have been many media outlets following the story. In the last few days I’ve talked to many reporters including Roe and Roeper on WLS radio, Mike McConnell on WGN radio and Brian Byers and Co. on WSOY in Decatur. The Chicago Tribune and Chicago News Cooperative have been following the story closely as well.
If you have a few minutes, check out the media clips below. We will be working hard to pass this legislation as soon as possible.
