Pritzker offers hints of how to fill pension hole
from Crain's Chicago Business
Gov. J.B. Pritzker is offering his first solid hints as to how he’ll deal with the state’s pension funding crisis, and he’s calling in a trio of Chicago business leaders and a top Republican to help him. In a statement, Pritzker said he’s naming two task forces, one to consider possible consolidation of pension funds, especially hundreds of small downstate funds that cover municipal police and fire departments, and the other to ponder whether to turn over state-owned infrastructure and real estate assets to its funds, which now have more than $130 billion in unfunded liabilities.
