SB 2404 Passes Out of Committee

IFT President Dan Montgomery testified in support of President Cullerton's SB 2404 today along with other leaders from the We Are One coalition.

"This proposal is the product of a long standing commitment of shared sacrifice and it shows that we can accomplish good things if we come to the table in good faith. I think there is nowhere else in the nation that states struggling with pension issues have been able to come to concord with those who represent public workers like we have in this bill."
It is very likely that both SB 2404, President Cullerton's fair and responsible legislation, and S B1, Speaker Madigan's pension slashing "mega-bill," will be called for a vote in the Senate TOMORROW!
