AFSCME: Madigan Pension Proposal Won't Stand Up Against Legal Challenge


There’s another new pension plan on the table at the Statehouse.

 

House Speaker Mike Madigan has introduced his own proposal, similar to a bipartisan proposal that passed the House earlier this spring.

 

Madigan’s bill has slightly more generous provisions for cost-of-living increases and a lower cap on the salary upon which pension benefits are based.

 

Republicans at the House say there are ideas in the plan worth considering, but AFSCME calls Madigan’s approach unconstitutional and predicts it wouldn’t survive a legal challenge.
