The Sunday Spin: Politics with Rick Pearson

Rockford Mayor Larry Morrisey: taxes & pension laws

Rockford Mayor Larry Morrisey joined Rick Pearson this morning to discuss problems in municipalities around the state. The city of Rockford has capped on what it can raise for fire and police pensions. Because the city is unable to further raise property taxes, services must be cut. Morrisey talks about the strict and outdated laws causing this issue and what can be done.
