Madigan Continues Push for Teacher Pension Shift


House Speaker Mike Madigan is vowing to press ahead with legislation that would transfer the cost of teacher pensions away from the state and back to local school districts.

 

Madigan has described the current teacher pension system as a “free lunch” for local districts.

 

But opponents of the idea say the cost shift would force deeper program cuts… or higher property taxes… in school districts around the state.
