98th General Assembly comes to a close 

The 99th General Assembly starts today, as the legislators elected this past November are sworn in. Governor Bruce Rauner was sworn in Monday, January 12.

Each GA session spans two years.  

98th GA adjourns 
The 98th General Assembly has adjourned. All bills introduced but not signed into law during this GA session are considered "dead" and must be reintroduced with new bill numbers in order to be considered.
2015 IMRF Legislative Agenda    
Each year, the IMRF Board decides which proposals it will pursue for the coming year. These agenda items must be introduced by a legislator as a House or Senate bill and do not yet have a sponsor.

In 2015, IMRF will put forward the following proposals:
  • Correct a reference in Section 7-141.1 of the Illinois Pension Code.
  • Allow Board decisions to be made at the committee level, rather than requiring a formal Board meeting. This would not change the number of votes required for passage.
  • Reduce the time required before IMRF can begin the offset process with the treasurer or comptroller from 90 days delinquent to 60 days delinquent.
