Updated 5:30 p.m. Reporting from Illinois Public Radio's Amanda Vinicky and Brian Mackey used in this report.
The Illinois House has just adjourned the 97th General Assembly permanently, without taking a vote on the pension legislation.
The commission proposed earlier in the day by Gov. Quinn (more below) was not addressed.
Members of the House approved it in committee, but several said they were doing so only as a show of respect for the governor, and had serious reservations about whether the idea was constitutional.
