Pension cap


Speaker Madigan Pension Testimony

At the beginning of the 2011 session, Madigan testified about HJRCA 0062, which would create caps on Illinois’ pension spending.[2]

Madigan sponsored a bill that would create a constitutional amendment capping state spending and another that would create an amendment requiring a super-majority vote for any governmental body to increase pension benefits. Both measures were approved by committee, "leading some to wonder at the sincerity of the speaker’s sudden call for fiscal restraint."

“It’s kind of like ‘Stop me before I legislate again,’” said Kent Redfield, a professor of political science at the University of Illinois-Springfield.

Madigan touched on this philosophy when telling lawmakers of the need to change the state constitution to require a three-fifths vote from the Legislature or any local government or school district when considering a pension increase. This could be an increase in the amount of a current benefit, an addition of a new benefit or an expansion of the category of eligible individuals.

“It’s just too easy for a member of the Legislature to vote ‘yes’ for the pension benefit increase because there is no price tag attached to the bill,” Madigan said. “The price comes later – as we are all finding out.”[3]
