Illinois pension deal could wrap up in one day

Friday, 29 November 2013 13:46 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - After wrestling with public pension reform for months, Illinois legislative leaders say lawmakers might only need a single day to pass their plan for dealing with the $100 billion crisis.

The 10-member conference committee on pension reform is set to meet in Springfield Tuesday. If six of the 10 members sign a report agreeing to terms of a deal, both chambers could bring legislation up for a vote the same day.

House Speaker Michael Madigan's spokesman, Steve Brown, says the legislation could be considered in both chambers simultaneously.

Legislative leaders announced this week they had reached agreement on a plan that would save $160 billion over 30 years.

Along with Gov. Pat Quinn, they have spent recent days calling members and asking them to support the plan.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is calling state lawmakers back to the Capitol to consider incentives aimed at attracting a massive Boeing Co. production facility to the state.

Officials are hoping to entice Boeing to produce its 777X passenger jet in Missouri. Several other states also have been discussing trying to land the project, and Boeing hopes to make a decision early next year.

Nixon called the special legislative session Friday. It will start Monday, Dec. 2, which is about a month before lawmakers convene their regular session on Jan. 8.

Boeing is already one of Missouri's largest employers, with about 15,000 people including thousands of machinists in the St. Louis area.
