Cost Shift Still On The Radar

School districts still aren't off the hook when it comes to paying more toward teacher pensions.  House Speaker Michael Madigan says it's time to end the quote, "free lunch" for downstate and suburban schools, which currently don't pay anything for the retirement costs.  Madigan says that's part of the reason why the state's pension system is so drastically underfunded today.  He's holding a special meeting tomorrow to create a bill that would shift the pension costs to the school districts.
