It is being reported that the General Assembly will return to Springfield the week of December 3rd to pass a sweeping pension reform bill.

An email from House Clerk Tim Mapes to members of the General Assembly was just obtained and released by the Capitol Fax –

The email states as follows:

Please reserve Tuesday, December 3, 2013 as a possible day to return to Springfield for Session.
In addition, a suggestion would be to keep other days that week available for session should the schedule change.
As always, will keep you advised as to further session day developments.
