Governor Quinn hints at special session on pensions

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Gov. Pat Quinn is hinting at the possibility of a special session on pensions when lawmakers are in Springfield next month for the Illinois State Fair.

A bipartisan panel is attempting to come up with a solution to the nearly $100 billion crisis after the House and Senate remained deadlocked. However the panel blew past Quinn's deadline on pensions and he halted their pay as a consequence.

Quinn told reporters Tuesday that legislators will be in Springfield for the annual days devoted to state political leaders. But he wouldn't specifically say if that's his plan.

Quinn has called two special sessions on pensions before. Neither produced results.

The state fair will be held Aug. 8 through 18.
