There will be no Senate vote on Pensions. Will Madigan and Cross have their way?

I printed the response my teacher colleague who teaches down the hall got from her state senator Ed Maloney when she wrote him about messing with our TRS.

He promised not to vote to cut benefits.

When we were in Springfield, we asked Park Ridge Senator Dan Kotowski the same thing. He gave us pretty much the same answer.

But it is hard to imagine a more disingenuous response, even from a bunch of politicians.

Nick Nosek writes me:

He wrote a nice response and on then did the opposite as on March 30th he voted in favor of SB512. Please go to the legislature’s website enter SB512. Click on the third reading link and you will see how your elected officials voted. SB512 was a shell bill that said nothing. It is now in the pension committee of the house. An amendment adding the third tier is likely to be added on
