SPRINGFIELD -- Governor Quinn finally met with both leaders of the General Assembly Monday. The House speaker stood him up last week.

Quinn is trying to broker a deal on pension reform. The House approved one version with the Senate choosing another. He'd like to see both plans put into one bill and let the courts decide which is constitutional.

The Senate president is okay with that, but the speaker is not. The governor is calling lawmakers back to decide on pension reform June 19.
