Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
70 ILCS 915/0.01
Adds reference to:
40 ILCS 5/4-108.5

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Downstate Firefighter Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that in the case of a person who was first employed by a municipality in 2008 to provide fire protection services on a full-time basis as a firefighter or fire chief, but was prevented from participating in a pension fund under that Article until 2015 by reason of the employing municipality's delay in establishing a pension fund as required under that Article, the person may elect to establish creditable service for periods of such employment by that municipality during which he or she did not participate, by applying to the board in writing and paying to the pension fund the employee contributions that he or she would have made had deductions from salary been made for employee contributions at the time the service was rendered, together with interest thereon at the rate of 6% per annum, compounded annually, from the time the service was rendered to the date of payment; except that the granting of such creditable service is contingent upon the consent of the governing body of the municipality and payment to the pension fund by the municipality of the corresponding employer contributions, plus interest. Provides that, for a person who establishes such creditable service, the date upon which the person first became a participating firefighter shall be deemed to be no later than the first day of employment for which the creditable service has been granted. Effective immediately.
