Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago) refused to vote on measures last week that outright broke promises the state has made to public employees. 

“Both Senate Bill 1 and Senate Bill 35 were inadequate in protecting the public employees and working families of Illinois,” said Sandoval, a member of the Senate Licensed Activities and Pensions Committee. “Both of the proposals would strip benefits from workers who were made a promise when they were hired. Working families rely on their pensions to one day be able to retire, and under the measures proposed last week the state would deny those promises.”
