Nov 22nd -- Pihos Perspective NewsLetter
(posted 11/22/2013) -
As we approach the final weeks of 2013, lawmakers have been advised to prepare for a possible return to Springfield in December for a special session to deal with critical business issues unresolved following the abrupt adjournment of the recent fall veto session. While legislators did act on some bills during the recent veto session, most of the major issues, like pension reform, remain unanswered. There are reports that the General Assembly may take action on pension reform soon, but no bill has been identified and put forward for consideration. I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you news from the 48th District along with key updates on several issues affecting our state.
