$34 million controlled by Rauner, allies looms over legislative session

Author: Editor

As state lawmakers find themselves in their typical late May posture of trying to pass a budget, a new political dynamic hovers over the proceedings: more than $34 million in campaign cash under the control of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and his allies.

Rauner already has sprinkled a total of $400,000 in contributions to every Republican legislator as he talks about the need for the GOP to "stay unified" at the end of session. Democrats have made those campaign donations an issue, citing what they say are the bad optics of Rauner doling out money at the same time he's asking Republicans to take tough votes for what he calls his "Turnaround Agenda."

Illinois school districts still fatten pensions, pay millions in penalties

Author: Editor

Glenbard Township High School District 87 made a little-noticed wire transfer to the state two years ago, $164,198 that was never discussed in public.

What taxpayers weren't told was that the payment was required by state law because the west suburban district had given hefty pay hikes to two retiring educators, helping fatten their pensions.

A 2005 pension law was intended to rein in big salary spikes that boost retiree benefits and pension costs statewide, imposing cash penalties on districts that gave raises larger than 6 percent to outgoing educators.
