SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says House Speaker Michael Madigan's pension-reform plan deserves a Senate vote.

The Democratic governor said the proposal is comprehensive.

Illinois has nearly $100 billion in pension debt because of years of state underfunding.

Senate President John Cullerton has a different idea he plans to call for a vote Thursday afternoon. Public employee unions back that proposal.

The House approved the Madigan bill last week. It would require employees to pay 2 percent more toward retirement benefits. It would reduce annual cost-of-living increases for retirees and raise the retirement age for workers under 45.

Cullerton's proposal would offer employees a choice between health insurance or cost-of-living increases. He says it would survive a court challenge.

After Wednesday night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings, KTRS Sports Director John Hadley reports that the Blues are having issues behind the scenes.

Obviously, there are issues for the Blues on and off the ice--down 3-2 on the ice. KTRS Sports has confirmed that goalie Jaroslav Halak and Coach Ken Hitchcock got into a very animated and loud argument prior to game 4 out in LA, with Halak shouting profanity at Hitchcock. Furthermore, there are players on the team that noted earlier in the series, when Brian Elliot was hurt and down on the ice, Halak did not even begin to stretch.

Halak now finds himself in trouble with his coach and with his teammates. If being down 3-2 and going to LA isn't enough, the team now has to deal with the fact that there is a legitimate issue in the locker room and that is the attitude of Jaroslav Halak. 

KTRS has reached out to the Blues for a comment, but have not received a response.

They found the boy's father just a short time later, he had been taking a nap when the child left the house.
