From AFSCME 31:
Pension-cutting Senate Bill 16 has passed the Illinois Senate with 31 senators voting yes, 22 voting no and 6 not voting. The bill now goes to the House.
All but six Senate Republicans voted wrong. Only these Republicans voted right: Anderson, Bivins, McCann, Fowler, Rezin and Schimpf.
In all, 16 Senate Democrats did the right thing and voted no. But the following 15 Senate Democrats voted wrong, to cut pensions of state and university employees and teachers: President Cullerton, Harmon, Hunter, Koehler, Landek, Link, Martinez, McGuire, Morrison, Muñoz, Raoul, Sandoval, Silverstein, Steans and Trotter.
It’s more important than ever to call your State Representative at 888-912-5959. Tell them to VOTE NO on SB 16, HB 4027 or any pension-cutting bill.
