Quinn to Deliver Budget Address Today

Kids in Illinois are paying the price for lawmakers' failure to reform the state's pension system.  That's according to Governor Quinn's team, which says rising pension costs are crowding out funding for other vital areas of government.  Quinn plans to suggest a 400-million dollar cut to education in his budget address today, with less money being spent on each student across the state.   Quinn's Budget Director says it wasn't easy to make the cuts, but with pension costs reaching more than six billion dollars next year, they had no choice.
