IEA President Cinda Klickna and IEA Director of Government Relations Jim Reed report on the outcome of the 2013 Spring Session of the Illinois General Assembly.
The session was marked by the passing of numerous pieces of legislation supported by IEA and by the defeat of bad bills, including the unconstitutional attack on pensions, Senate Bill 1.
The We Are One Illinois union coalition was unsuccessful in its fight to pass a constitutional pension bill negotiated with Senate President Cullerton. SB 2404 was not called for a House vote after easily passing in the Senate. The fight to pass a constitutional and fair bill that will help stabilize the pension systems will continue when the legislature returns to work in the fall.
