Daley: Quinn Should Hold Marathon Talks On Pension

CHICAGO (AP) — Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley is calling on Gov. Pat Quinn to bring the state’s legislative leaders together for around-the-clock talks to resolve the state’s $97 billion pension shortfall.

At a news conference on Monday, Daley urged Quinn to get more aggressive in trying to solve the worst-in-the-nation crisis by bringing legislative leaders to the governor’s mansion in Springfield to negotiate until they reach some kind of deal.

Daley has formed an exploratory committee as he considers running against Quinn in next spring’s Democratic primary.

Daley says the governor is wasting time and dismissed Quinn’s suspension of lawmakers’ pay until they come up with a solution to the crisis as a gimmick that may even be unconstitutional.
