Interesting because he acknowledged the fact we can’t invest our way out of the pension shortfall. While he mentions 120K active employees, according to the June 2016 General Obligation Bond offering from the state, IL has 766,976 total people in the state pension funds, but only 305,395 are active members. Less than 40% of the total participants are paying in the system, the rest are taking out which is why they are so upside down.
