Rauner on Illinois pensions: 'Don't change history'
Gov.-Elect Bruce Rauner changed his tune to defend retired state employee's pensions, remarking that it's most important to "protect what is done — don't change history. Don't modify or reduce anybody's pension who has retired, or has paid into a system and they've accrued benefits. Those don't need to change." Rauner's public comments came several days after a Springfield judge declared unconstitutional the 2013 pension reform bill passed by predecessor Pat Quinn, who remains in the governor's office through mid-January.
