In August, Gov. Rauner signed into law the two proposals that IMRF advanced in its 2018 Legislative Agenda:
Public Act 100-1097 (formerly SB 3119)
This law prohibits IMRF participation by former police chiefs who meet all of the following criteria:
- Participated as a police chief in an Article 3 police pension fund in a city, village, or town.
- Take a new job working with the same municipality for the police department or in an advisory capacity.
- Have no IMRF service credit prior to August 26, 2018.
IMRF will send additional information to employers who may be affected by this bill.
Public Act 100-0935 (formerly SB 2884)
This law allows IMRF to offer electronic voting options for its Employee and Annuitant Trustee elections. IMRF plans to postpone
implementing an electronic voting system until after 2021, once we've completed an upgrade of our database. Any system we introduce will continue to allow members and annuitants to vote via paper ballot if they prefer.
