Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends changes to the Chicago Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Specifies that for State fiscal year 2018, the State shall contribute $221,300,000 to the Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund. Beginning in State fiscal year 2019, provides that the State shall contribute an amount, to be determined by the Fund, equal to the employer normal cost for that fiscal year for all teachers hired before either (i) the implementation date of certain alternative benefits for members of the Downstate Teacher Article or (ii) the resolution or ordinance date for certain alternative benefits under the Chicago Teacher Article, whichever is earlier, plus the amount allowed under a specified provision to defray health insurance costs for all employees. Provides that the amount shall be reduced by the employer normal cost of the increase in benefits associated with the portion of salary in excess of the amount of the salary set for the Governor. Terminates an additional State contribution to the Fund equal to 0.544% of the Fund's total teacher payroll. Adds provisions concerning certification of the amount of the contribution and the submission of vouchers for the payment of State contributions to the Fund. Recommends changes to the State Pension Funds Continuing Appropriation Act to add a continuing appropriation for those State contributions to the Fund. Recommends changes to the School Code. In provisions concerning maximum reimbursement per credit hour for adult basic education, removes the consumer price index multiplier. Removes references to "Base Tax Year's Extension", "ECI", "Extension Limitation Ratio", "Minimum Funding Level", "Preceding Tax Year", "Preceding Tax Year's Extension", and "PTELL EAV". In the definition of "employee benefits", removes the inclusion of costs associated with statutorily required payment of pension normal costs. In the definition of "Organizational Unit CWI", sets forth a maximum Organizational Unit CWI of 1.04. In the calculation of employee benefit investments, removes provisions concerning the certification and calculation of employer normal cost of teacher pensions for all school districts. Requires the State Superintendent of Education to calculate certain average salaries once (rather than annually). Removes a limitation that certain salary calculations shall only be applied in the first year of implementation of Evidence-Based Funding; removes calculation provisions for subsequent years. Removes provisions for the calculation of the Chicago school district's Adjusted Local Capacity Target. Removes provisions exempting portions of an Organizational Unit within a redevelopment project area from calculations of the Unit's EAV; removes corresponding changes in other Acts. Removes provisions that included specified block grants in the calculation of the Chicago school district's Base Funding Minimum. Limits provisions specifying that the Base Funding Minimum for Organizational Units shall be the sum of the amount of Evidence-Based Funding for the prior school year and the Base Funding Minimum for the prior school year to the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years. Provides that beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, the Base Funding Minimum shall be the sum of the Evidence-Based Funding for the prior school year and the Base Funding Minimum for the prior school year divided by the Organizational Unit's ASE for the prior school year multiplied by the Organizational Unit's ASE for the current school year. Changes a reference in the calculation of the Evidence-Based Funding formula distribution system from "Local Capacity Target percentage" to "Local Capacity Percentage". Removes provisions for distributing New State Funds if New State Funds are less than the Minimum Funding Level. (Adds reference to: 40 ILCS 5/17-127; 40 ILCS 15/1.1).
