Illinois Revenue and Debt Reform, Not Pension Reform!

To be delivered to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, and Governor Bruce Rauner

Petition Statement

Illinois has a pension debt and revenue problem. Most legislators know this, and they also understand the concept of justice and what lawfulness demands: that people must keep their covenants with one another. No justice is accomplished when diminishing public employees' earned benefits and rights because of decades of legislators' irresponsibility, corruption and incompetence. Stop Illinois pension reform. It is immoral and illegal.
There are currently 6,825 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

Many Illinois legislators want to challenge both Illinois and U.S. Constitutions instead of addressing the causes of the state's budget deficits. Illinois public employees have earned their pension. Their pension is a constitutionally-guaranteed contract.
