They've been called back to Springfield to take up a measure that would drastically alter the state's retirement plans. Doing so would have obvious ramifications for state employees, teachers and university workers whose pensions are at stake. But the impact of a vote is far more widespread. What happens could also affect everything from the state's credit rating and Illinois' next budget, to the 2014 elections. The outcome is anything but certain.</p> Tue, 03 Dec 2013 12:21:51 +0000 Amanda Vinicky 14208 at http://wuis.org Strange Bedfellows Could Kill Leaders' Pension Deal
