The Illinois Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the pension overhaul case next month. According to a news release, arguments will be held March 11th in the Supreme Court Courtroom in Springfield.

Illinois lawmakers approved cuts to state employee pensions in 2013.  The action followed years of stalemate over how to address underfunding. State workers called the plan unconstitutional.

Legal briefs on the case are posted here.
