Quinn pushes back pension campaign launch
Gov. Pat Quinn has again pushed back the timeline for when he'll revealed his so-called grass-roots campaign to rally support for an overhaul of Illinois' pension system.
Lawmakers have failed to come up with a plan to deal with the roughly $85 billion pension funding gap, which is the worst of any state in the country.
Legislators couldn't agree on an approach during an August special session and they won't meet again until after the Nov. election.
Quinn has said he'll push forward with a grass-roots campaign to win public support. He initially said more details would come in September but has pushed that back several times. The Chicago Democrat says he'll now wait until after Nov. 6.
His office has said that the campaign will involve the Internet.
