Gov. Quinn faces deadline for Chicago pension reform
Today is the deadline for Governor Quinn to take action on a Chicago pension reform bill.
It would raise the retirement age for city employees, and reduce retirement benefits.
It would also let the city raise property taxes.
The bill is supported by Mayor Emanuel.
If Quinn does nothing, the bill automatically takes effect so today, he could either sign it, veto it, or make changes to it.
On Friday, Quinn signed a bill that allows Chicago to raise 911 fees for landlines and cell phones.
A spokesman said the bill would help fund 911 centers across the state.
