Pension deal uncertain as Illinois veto session nears

Friday, 04 October 2013 02:07 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A proposed solution to Illinois' historic $100 million pension crisis is hanging in the balance as the state Legislature's October veto session approaches.

   Key Democrats on a pension panel are pushing a plan to save the state $138 billion over the next 30 years, but Republican lawmakers want a number of changes. House Speaker Michael Madigan hasn't yet committed to calling the proposal for a vote, either.

   Senate President John Cullerton supports the deal and calls it "less unconstitutional" than a previous plan that would have saved $163 billion.

   Illinois' five public-employee retirement funds have an unfunded liability of about $100 billion. The annual contribution to the fund, plus payments on past pension bonds, is about $7.65 billion this year. That number will increase in years to come without action.

   FERNLEY, Nev. (AP) - The victim of a fatal car fire in a Fernley motel parking lot has been identified as a 62-year-old Missouri woman.

   Lyon County Sheriff's Lt. J.L. Pattison said Thursday dental records confirmed the identity of Greiss Ghobrial of Wildwood, Mo. He said the cause of death remains under investigation but no foul play is suspected.

   Her body was found in a burned out car by emergency crews responding to a report of a fire late Tuesday night at the Comfort Suites off U.S. Interstate 80 about 30 miles east of Reno.

   Firefighters said they found her inside the car after they extinguished the blaze.
