SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- A house committee voted Sunday night to restore pension benefits for union officials. That goes against a bill already on Governor Pat Quinn's desk.
House Bill 3813 would prohibit Chicago Union leaders from getting pensions from the union and their public job.
It would also make two Federation of Teachers lobbyists ineligible to receive pensions from the Teachers Retirement System.
But in a Sunday meeting in Springfield, Representative Kevin McCarthy and House Speaker Mike Madigan, both democrats, said that bill is unconstitutional.
The House will vote on the new bill to restore the pensions Monday.
Senate leaders say they'll look at it, if it's passed.
The Governor's office says Quinn will review the new bill when it gets to his desk.
