SPRINGFIELD, IL – Illinois State Senator Julie Morrison (D–Deerfield) will not be enrolling in the state’s pension plan.  Along with 21 other state legislators, Senator Morrison has decided to opt-out of Illinois’ troubled pension system.

As highlighted in a recent Chicago Tribune editorial, Morrison has decided to set an example and forgo the state-subsidized retirement plan.

“I have discussed the need to reform our state’s troubled pension system before,” Senator Morrison said. “This demonstrates my determination to seek positive solutions to the Pension shortfalls.”
