North suburban Democratic State Representative Dan Biss is holding a community forum on state pensions tonight.
Frankly, Biss is no friend of state employees on this matter. But he has invited Ralph Martire, Executive Director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability. Martire calls for revenue enhancement and restructuring pension debt as the means of resolving pension issues.
Biss has also invited Laurence Msall, President of the Civic Federation. Msall and the Civic Committee think you can solve the $100 billion pension crisis by cutting benefits.
Tell Biss what you think.
