Time is running out for Illinois lawmakers to pass a pension reform bill before the lame duck session ends.
The state pension system is $96 billion short of what it needs to meet its obligation to current and future retirees.
Republicans and Democrats will have to agree on a way to close the gap without breaking the state’s legal obligation to its current pensioners.
But there are only two days left to find a solution.
The House is meeting again Monday.
The Senate is not in session but will reconvene if a measure is passed in the House.
A new General Assembly will be seated Wednesday.
