Our local heroes and municipalities deserve financial security.
Send an email to your legislators now and let them know that you support common-sense pension reform that protects local police officers and firefighters, as well as the well-being of Illinois’ communities. Commissioned by Governor JB Pritzker, the Pension Consolidation Feasibility Task Force’s recent report calls for the consolidation of the state’s more than 650 individual downstate and suburban public safety pension systems. By consolidating the investments of these funds into two downstate funds – one for police officers and one for firefighters - we will be able to ensure that the financial promises made to the brave public servants who protect our communities are sustainable while also providing financial relief to taxpayers. The General Assembly must take action during veto session and pass this proposal into law.
