State Representative Bill Mitchell (R-Forsyth) has passed legislation out of the Illinois House dealing with the State Universities Retirement System.
SB1059 allows an employee who, under SURS, terminated their retirement plan with the State and then regains full time re-employment with a SURS employer, to take part in the State Health Insurance system. The legislation still bars them from participation in the pension system.
That's State Rep. Bill Mitchell. Sen. Chapin Rose sponsored the legislation.
