CHICAGO — Illinois lawmakers convene Tuesday to vote on a package of pension reforms agreed to by their leaders with the aim of stabilizing a system saddled with $100 billion of unfunded obligations.

The legislation, which was only just released in draft form Sunday, will receive its first vetting early Tuesday during a hearing of the conference committee assembled in June to craft a new reform package. The House and Senate will meet later on Tuesday to cast their votes on the package settled on by the General Assembly's leaders just last Wednesday.
