It's been more than a year since Illinois passed a major overhaul of government-employee pensions. Today, the law goes before the state Supreme Court.
The law being challenged does away with retirees' compounded cost-of-living raises and increases the retirement age for younger workers. It also gives employees a small break on how much of their paycheck automatically goes toward their future pension.
Back when he signed it in 2013, then-Gov. Pat Quinn called the reform a bipartisan victory.
"Everyday people, I think, will benefit from this reform," Quinn said.
