Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago Firefighter Article of the Illinois Pension Code.

Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Pension Laws Commission)
 The fiscal impact of HB 492 cannot be determined, as the number of firefighters who would recover court costs and litigation expenses is unknown. According to the Fund, HB 492 is not expected to significantly increase the annual cost of the fund.
