Navigating Pension Reform in Illinois: What Lies Ahead?
The Civic Federation is pleased to partner with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to co-host "Navigating Pension Reform in Illinois: What Lies Ahead?" on Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
The purpose of this half-day forum is to examine the options available to the State of Illinois as it attempts to address its ongoing fiscal crisis, precipitated in large part by its severely underfunded public pensions. The panels at the conference will look at the experiences of other states as they have worked to address their own public pension difficulties and explore several of the suggested paths forward, from finding a revenue source sufficient to simply fund the obligation to changing the Illinois Constitution.
