Mautino on failed pension session

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2012

A measure Friday to cut Illinois legislative pensions fizzled out. Democrats saying it showed they’re willing to share the pain they’re asking of other public employees. Republicans said it was a stunt to provide political cover for a failed session. Asked for his reaction on the Republican’s comments, Rep. Frank Mautino said there was truth on both sides. Asked what’s next, Rep. Mautino said he doubted the Governor would call another special session. Mautino believes negotiators will go in and deal with all five pension funds in the near future.
