TUA’s recommendation for a freeze of all Illinois government-employee hiring was featured on Fox 32 Chicago.

ILhiringfreezeCHICAGO (FOX 32 News) – Taxpayers United of America wants the Illinois government to freeze employee hiring until pension reforms are enacted.

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.
