BGA not Thrilled about Pension Amendment on Ballot

The Better Government Association doesn’t make a recommendation for voters, but it’s not thrilled about a pension-related constitutional amendment on next week’s ballot. “In addition to doing nothing to address Illinois’ growing unfunded pension liability or put any real checks on lawmakers’ ability to increase that obligation at will, the amendment presents several technical problems,” writes Emily Miller, the BGA’s police and public affairs coordinator. “It uses new terms found nowhere in the pension code or in the regulations governing pension funds, making it impossible to understand the practical implications of the proposed language.”
