How an Illinois Supreme Court ruling could devastate Chicago's schools
from Chicago Tribune (commentary)
In a few days, the Illinois Supreme Court will hear arguments in the state's appeal of a lower court ruling that recent legislation reforming four state pension funds is unconstitutional. The lower court ruled that the Illinois Constitution's pension clause prohibits the state from modifying pension benefits, even in exceptional circumstances where it is necessary to protect the public welfare.
