Madigan To Appeal Pension Decision

(Springfield, IL) -- Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is planning to appeal a judge's decision regarding a pension overhaul passed last year by the Legislature. Madigan says the State Supreme Court could take up the case by the end of January. A Springfield judge ruled the overhaul aimed at fixing the state's 100-billion-dollar pension crisis was unconstitutional on Friday. The state will seek an expedited hearing from the Supreme Court.
