The conference committee on pension reform meets Wednesday in the Bilandic building in Chicago.It is an honor to serve on the Conference Committee on Senate Bill 1. I take very seriously my responsibility to consider the opinions and concerns of all Illinois citizens, and I hope you will reach out to me with your thoughts and ideas.

As you may know, the committee has met twice in Chicago and will meet for a third time at 3 p.m. July 8 in Springfield in room 409 of the Capitol. This is a public hearing and all are welcome to attend; you can also watch or listen to the committee here.

The committee is working hard to communicate ideas to the systems' actuaries so as to be as informed as possible about the potential impacts of the proposals we're considering. While this is a strong indication of progress, it is unrealistic to hope that we would have an actuarial analysis in hand by July 9. We will continue working on a constant basis, and I'll be sure to keep you updated as we move forward.

Please call my district office at 847-568-1250 with any questions.
