SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The amount Illinois must pay to keep pace with its pension systems should grow less than 2 percent next year but still total nearly $7 billion.
 
A state actuary's report that Auditor General William Holland released Tuesday says taxpayers must pay $6.86 billion in the fiscal year that begins July 1. That's up about $100 million from this fiscal year.
 
Lawmakers adopted a reform plan in early December for the five pension systems to cut a $100 billion debt. But it doesn't take effect until June 1 and has been challenged in court.
 
The actuary suggested that three systems covering teachers, university employees and general state employees lower the estimated investment return they expect. It made the same suggestion last year but the numbers didn't change.

The St. Louis Police Department is hoping video from a red light camera can help ID a man seen leaving the scene of a shooting and car accident.

 

Just after 6:45 PM Sunday, a driver at the intersection of Delmar and Skinker was shot several times. The shooting caused him to crash his car. In the video, the passenger of that car can be seen running away. Police say he stole a car in the area and drove off. Officers found a gun and drugs in the vehicle.  

 

If you recognize the suspect, police ask you to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS. It’s anonymous and tips leading to an arrest are eligible for a $1,000 reward.

Boeing: Site of 777X factory is up to a union vote

Monday, 30 December 2013 15:41 Published in Local News
SEATTLE (AP) - Boeing has told local political leaders that this week's vote by Machinists will determine the fate of some jobs on the new 777X airplane.
 
In a press conference Monday morning, local politicians gathered in Everett to discuss the importance of approving the contract. They said Boeing executive Ray Conner told them in a meeting that the union vote will decide whether the new 777X composite wing is built in the region.
 
Conner told the politicians that an accepted contract will ensure that the wing work stays in the Puget Sound while a vote to reject the deal will ensure the jobs go elsewhere.
 
Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke says there is no other choice but to vote yes.
 
Local union leaders say the contract involves too many concessions, including a plan to shift workers away from traditional pensions.
