CHICAGO (CBS) — A meeting between Gov. Pat Quinn and the state’s four legislative leaders ended Friday afternoon without much progress towards pension reform, and it appears next week’s special session won’t bring a solution.
WBBM Newsrdadio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the governor met with the leaders for nearly two hours, but when Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) emerged from Quinn’s Chicago office, she suggested little had been accomplished.
“I kind of felt like I was witnessing an awkward family fight,” she said. “It was uncomfortable. It’s clear that there’s not agreement; even close to agreement between the Democrats.”
