Bill Daley to Propose Plan to End Pension Deadlock

CHICAGO (AP) -- Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley plans to lay out a three-step plan to end the deadlock on pension reform in Illinois.

The Chicago Democrat announced last week he's forming a committee to explore running for governor in 2014. His Monday announcement on pensions will be the first substantive appearance of his campaign.

Daley's office released little information on his pension ideas ahead of his appearance in Chicago. An advisory says he'll criticize both Gov. Pat Quinn and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.

Quinn has said he'll run for re-election and he could face a challenge from Madigan, daughter of House Speaker Michael Madigan.

Daley is the brother of Richard M. Daley, Chicago's mayor for 22 years.

The state has a nearly $100 billion pension debt.
