U of I Prof: Vaguely Worded Constitutional Amendment on Ballot Targets Public Employees

A proposed constitutional amendment could put the pensions of state workers, teachers and other public sector employees in jeopardy.


That’s according to a retired U of I professor, who says the amendment on next month’s ballot is vaguely worded, but appears to contain a provision that would undo the current provisions in the Illinois Constitution that prevent a reduction in pension benefits for those workers.


The amendment would require a three-fifths vote before any public body could increase pension benefits, but retired professor John Kindt says that’s a smoke screen for an all-out assault on public sector pensions.
