Illinois Senate Dems Quotes of the Week

  1. 1. Illinois Senate Dems The Week in Quotes
  2. 2. Pensions John Sullivan: “This proposal has a drastic and negative impact on both current and retired employees and, I believe, it has serious constitutional issues. I understand the enormous need for pension reform, but this isn’t it. Retirees have planned and saved based on promises from the state. It has to be our job to find equitable solutions without breaking those promises. I wouldn’t be surprised if we are back here in a year or two voting on a new plan after the courts find this one unconstitutional.”
  3. 3. ADM Tax Incentive Andy Manar: “This proposal began as a deeply flawed bill that would have benefitted very few at the expense of taxpayers. I appreciate ADM’s willingness to listen and work with both myself and local elected officials that led to this important job creation legislation. Our state still has a tough hill to climb and faces many challenges that demand our disciplined attention; but this bill is a step in the right direction, solidifying ADM’s current and future presence in Illinois while helping create jobs in a balanced way throughout the state.”
  4. 4. Office Max/Univar Tom Cullerton: “This package is proof that Illinois is competitive and shows our determination to bring new jobs to our state. Companies should see the direction the state is heading and realize the opportunities Illinois offers.”
  5. 5. Trauma Deserts Hunter: “We’re in a dire situation. The South Side needs trauma centers to reduce the number of violence-related deaths. Immediately after the hearing [on the necessity of trauma centers], I scheduled several meetings with the University of Chicago, the Illinois Hospital Association and the student organization Fearless Leading by Youth so concrete solutions can be formed.”
