The in box. Support for the Cullerton/We Are One pension-cutting bill from a member of the NEA Board of Directors.
Tom Tully is a member of the National Education Association Board of Directors.
Thank you Bob for your summary of the past fights we have had. I also support SB 2404.
What benefits will anyone receive if the state is not mandated to make their pension payment every year? TRS will continue to have to sell assets to make the benefit payment to retired members.
SB 2404 has language mandating the state pay the systems, and allowing the systems to sue if the state doesn’t pay. Without funding, we jeopardize ever getting our benefits.
