Fox 32 Chicago | Taxpayers United of America wants hiring freeze until pension crisis fixed
Governor Quinn says he wants to hire 200 new state troopers this year, but the organization says there’s not enough money in the state’s budget due to pension payouts.

That’s nearly 20 percent more than their annual salary was when they were employed.
