A press release from Govenror Bruce Rauner:
Statement on Supreme Court Decision
CHICAGO – Governor’s spokesman Lance Trover issued the following statement:
“The Supreme Court’s decision confirms that benefits earned cannot be reduced.
“That’s fair and right, and why the governor long maintained that SB 1 is unconstitutional.
“What is now clear is that a Constitutional Amendment clarifying the distinction between currently earned benefits and future benefits not yet earned, which would allow the state to move forward on common-sense pension reforms, should be part of any solution.”
