Pension legislation put on hold in Springfield

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says it's been a productive legislative session, but work on stabilizing the state's pension system must continue.
House Minority Leader Tom Cross said Thursday he couldn't find enough support to pass his version of the pension plan.
That means he's shelving the legislation at Quinn's request.
Quinn will bring lawmakers back to Springfield this summer for more work on the issue.
Quinn plans to call a meeting with top Democratic and Republican leaders in the coming week so they can come up with a pension reform agreement.
