SPRINGFIELD -- Governor Quinn weighs in on the pension reform debate with a major demand. His plan includes a requirement the state make its pension payment in full.

The governor would also like the reform to include lower cost-of-living increases and a higher retirement age. He believes it's the only way the system will work.

"The state can never, ever again not pay what it should pay every year to the pension account. That's why we're in this situation," said Quinn.

Lawmakers are still debating several plans. The pension debt could hit $100 billion this month.
