Senator Rezin releases statement on Illinois Supreme Court pension law decision

“It was important to get a piece of legislation in front of the Illinois Supreme Court, so we could be given a roadmap on how to solve our pension crisis in a constitutional way. Illinois has the worst unfunded pension liability in the country, which contributes to our poor credit rating. We can’t skip pension payments. In the last decade under one party rule, we have missed pension payments. That is unacceptable. I look forward to working with Governor Rauner and my colleagues from both sides of the political aisle to craft pension reform legislation that is constitutional and one that helps our state get back on its financial footing.”

– Sen. Rezin
