SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Governor Pat Quinn hinted to reporters that he might call the Illinois General Assembly back into session again.

Quinn wants the General Assembly to deal with pension reform in August since many would be at the Illinois State Fair anyway.

The Governor has already frozen the pay of legislators until there's a pension reform deal.

Both parties have special "days" at the fair.

For Governor Quinn, last year's special day included loud booing and cat-calling from AFSCME members.

"Governor's Day" and "Republican's Day" with be the 14th and 15th of August.
