Murphy, Raoul, Zalewski believe a pension bill will be called next week
Friday, Nov 1, 2013
* Four of the ten pension reform conference committee members were on “Chicago Tonight” this week. Right up front, they were asked whether they thought a bill would be voted on during next week’s veto session. Sen. Matt Murphy (R-Palatine) said he thought it would happen, as did two Democrats, Sen. Kwame Raoul and Rep. Mike Zalewski.
Rep. Darlene Senger (R-Naperville), however, said “I’m not sure.”
Senger said she believed they were “not far off” from an agreement, but said she’d like to see more savings.
But her comments about not being sure appear to jibe with her caucus leader’s recent statement that he would rather wait for a good pension reform bill than rush into something next week.
