McCaskill to propose Congress pay cuts

Friday, 01 March 2013 09:53 Published in Local News
U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill will introduce an amendment Friday that's aimed at making the sequester cuts as painful to federal lawmakers as it is to other federal employees. KSDK-TV reports that McCaskill's bill would cut senate and house paychecks by the same amount that a federal employee might have to take in a furlough. She told the station that if a federal employee has to lose a day's pay each week, then Congress should too. Eighty-five-billion dollars in automatic spending cuts begin today.

Illinois House to vote Thursday on pension changes

Thursday, 28 February 2013 11:51 Published in Local News
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A wide open debate on possible fixes for the state's pension mess is set for the Illinois House.

House Speaker Michael Madigan has scheduled a hearing for Thursday. Lawmakers are expected to vote on pension changes he is proposing.

A provision among the changes calls for penalizing retirement before age 67 with reduced benefits.

Another measure requires employees hired after January 2011 to pay an additional 5 percent toward their pensions on top of other contributions.

Riverside Democratic state Rep. Michael Zalewski says the expected votes are intended to gauge lawmakers' support for some potential reforms.

Zalewski says there's been enough talk about the changes and now is the time for legislators to actually show where they stand.
