Bill to End Retiree Health Care Subsidy Advances


An Illinois House committee has approved a bill that could mean an end to free health care for many state government retirees.

 

The bill, sponsored by House Speaker Mike Madigan, cleared the House Executive Committee unanimously and now heads to the House floor.

 

Currently, the state pays five-percent of a retiree’s health insurance premium per year of service, so a worker with 20 years of service does not pay a premium. But the bill would eliminate that subsidy for retired state workers, as well as for retired lawmakers and judges.
