The state has an 83-billion dollar pension liability that Quinn says is squeezing money from education and public safety.  This year alone the state paid more than five-billion dollars into the system.  Quinn wants to have a vote by the end of the month but he and legislative leaders haven't been able to strike a deal on how to fix the system.
