The Illinois Senate today moved to non-concur to Senate Bill 1 as amended by the House. This was the first step toward an agreed conference committee to resolve the pension crisis. The Illinois House then acted to refuse to recede from their amendment and create the committee on reform.
The conference committee will be comprised of 10 members. Five will be appointed from the Senate, three appointed by the President and two appointed by the Minority Leader. Five additional members will be appointed by the House. Three will be appointed by the Speaker and two appointed by the Minority Leader.
