12        (2) This financial crisis is expected to continue.
13        (3) Units of local government must depend on
14    additional sources of revenue and, when those sources are
15    not forthcoming, must establish cost-saving programs.
16        (4) An early retirement incentive designed
17    specifically to target highly-paid senior employees could
18    result in significant annual cost savings.
19        (5) The early retirement incentive should be made

5    retirement incentives.
6        (7) A unit of local government adopting a program of
7    early retirement incentives under this Section is also

7shall not be eligible to participate in any future early
8retirement program adopted under this Section, and (iii) is

13repayment exceeds the refund amount.

15of the adoption of a program of early retirement incentives
16under this Section by an employer shall be amortized over a
17period of 10 years beginning on January 1 of the second
18calendar year following the calendar year in which the latest

23adopting an ordinance or resolution specifying the length of
24the amortization period and submitting a certified copy of the
25ordinance or resolution to the Fund no later than 6 months

SB3652 Enrolled- 11 -LRB102 22513 RPS 31654 b

1discretion, may accelerate payments to the Fund.
2    An employer may provide more than one early retirement
3incentive program for its employees under this Section.
4However, an employer that has provided an early retirement
5incentive program for its employees under this Section may not
6provide another early retirement incentive program under this
7Section until the liability arising from the earlier program
8has been fully paid to the Fund.
