We commend the Governor and General Assembly for passing Common Sense Pension reform
This past year, Illinois took historic action by passing a law that consolidates the state’s downstate public safety pension investment funds. This is an important first step in solving the ongoing pension funding crisis in Illinois. This solution provides much-needed financial relief to local governments and their taxpayers all while ensuring we are able to keep our promises to public servants. We sincerely thank the governor for his leadership and support on this very important issue as well as lawmakers who voted in favor.
