Deal near on CTA funding?
It's the Memorial Day weekend -- deadline time for the state legislature to hammer out a budget for next year without needing a super majority to pass it. And it appears there is agreement on how to fund the CTA's $55 million shortfall:
The plan is to underfund state pension plans and move that cash to the schools and the CTA.
Am I the only one who thinks that's just not right?
Those pensions are already way underfunded. I'd be really pissed if I were a state employee or a teacher.
