Tell the Conference Committee to Adopt SB 2404 Unchanged and Explore Alternatives to Pension Cuts!
The House and Senate have formed a ten-member "conference committee" to write new, "compromise" pension legislation.
But a negotiated compromise solution with overwhelming, bipartisan support already exists -- Senate Bill 2404. SB 2404 was the product of difficult negotiations between We Are One Illinois and President Cullerton and was only reluctantly agreed to by the unions in our coalition.
Send an e-mail to conference committee members urging them to adopt SB 2404 unchanged. Tell them to explore alternative "compromise" ideas, such as closing corporate tax loopholes and re-amortizing the pension debt, rather than slashing modest pensions.
