Houston, Other Mayors Tell State: Don't Pass Your Pension Problems Onto Us


Mayors across Illinois… including Springfield’s Mike Houston… are calling on Illinois lawmakers not to pass any more pension problems on to local governments. 

 

The mayors are trying to present a united front, amid reports that the state could divert revenues which ordinarily go to local governments to help pay for the state’s soaring pension costs. 

 

Houston and the other mayors are demanding that the state leave local government revenues alone… and stop passing new sweeteners for police and fire pensions.  The mayors also want changes to the current system… such as requiring public safety employees to pay more for their own pension and raising the retirement age for cops and firefighters.
