AFSCME: Medical Benefit Subsidy Cut Bad Move


AFSCME says a bill to end subsidies for state retirees’ medical benefits would gut health care for those retired workers.

 

The state currently pays five-percent of a retiree’s health care premium for each year of service… meaning that a retiree who worked 20 years or more gets free health care. But the State Journal-Register reports House Speaker Mike Madigan is the lead sponsor of a bill to end those subsidies.

 

The union says retirees depend upon the benefits that the state has promised to them.
