Chicago gets some pension relief as Rauner veto overridden
from The Associated Press
From May 31:
Chicago taxpayers will save $1 billion on police and fire pension costs in the short term under a law the General Assembly approved Monday after some House Republicans bucked their governor, who had railed against it as a ridiculous expansion of the Illinois' growing pension hole. The House voted 72-43 to override Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of the savings plan, which trumps state law that required the city to pump $4.62 billion into retirement accounts for police officers and firefighters through 2020.
