May 29, 2012

After moving the Democrat’s pension gutting bill out of the House Pension Committee on a 6 to 3 vote, it went to the House where it was debated in a calm and rational way until the House adjourned for the day late this afternoon. For those of you who live out of state, welcome to Illinois. H/T Tim Furman.
