FOP 7 Chicago Update - Courtesy of President Michael Shields - Illinois FOP Legislative Update - Pensions

Illinois FOP Legislative Update - Pensions = Lodge #7, along with other FOP Lodges throughout the state, has partnered with other Illinois public sector employees through the We Are One Illinois Coalition.We are asking all FOP members and their family members to contact their State Legislators immediately and urge them to vote NO on HB 1447. This bill may be voted on as early as Friday, August 17, 2012. Pass this information on to your friends, family members, and co-workers. While this legislation in its current form does not impact our pension, it could have a serious impact in other legislation. We need your support on this important pension issue.
