Senator Haine

 

Dear Friends,

 

011316CM0722During a committee hearing last week at the Capitol, officials from Gov. Bruce Rauner’s office and Senate Republicans defended their plan to skip pension payments to make the governor’s budget appear balanced.

 

The GOP pension-skipping idea comes despite the fact that similar action going back almost 100 years is largely responsible for the state's nearly $100 billion pension debt. Senate President John Cullerton advised Rauner's budget officials and Republican colleagues not to pursue skipping pension payments.

 

This plan is unacceptable. This is yet another bad idea from an irresponsible governor. Skipping pension payments is not an option, and it is certainly not a plan I support.

 

I encourage you to contact the governor and let your voice be heard. Tell him to protect your pensions.

 

Sincerely,
William Haine
Senator Bill Haine
