HJRCA49, a proposed amendment to the Illinois constitution, is scheduled for a vote in the Senate Executive Committee on Wednesday, April 25th at 3 pm. The bill would require a 3/5 super majority favorable vote by the requisite (funding) governmental body to pass an increase in pension benefits for any State employee (Tier II employees, take note!). If HJRCA49 were to become law, it could open the door to additional constitutional challenges to our existing pension benefits! To express your opposition, please call or email the Senators on this Committee before 3 pm Wednesday and ask them to vote "Nay" or "Present" on HJRCA49.
