Today, Governor Rauner approved House Bill 109 (the “budget bill”) and House Bill 3342 (the “budget implementation bill”). House Bill 109 became Public Act 100-586 and House Bill 3342 is now Public Act 100-587.

Last week Whitt Law noted that the budget implementation bill limits end-of-career salary increases to 3 percent for Teachers’ Retirement System members and State Universities Retirement System participants. This cap is lower than the 6 percent previously in effect. Contracts and collective bargaining agreements entered into, amended, or renewed on or after today’s date will be subject to the 3 percent limit. This provision of the budget implementation bill was discussed in more depth in our blog post here.
