CHICAGO (Reuters) - A meeting of Illinois' top state lawmakers did not produce a resolution on dealing with the state's huge unfunded public pension liability, House Speaker Michael Madigan said on Saturday.
He said work will continue and that it was still possible to reach a deal in time to be voted on early next week by the Legislature. (Reporting By Karl Plume, additional reporting by Karen Pierog; Editing by Eric Beech)
