SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois Senate voted today to eliminate state subsidies for retirees’ health insurance premiums. The measure, Senate Bill 1313, passed both chambers and now heads to Governor Pat Quinn for his signature.  Senate Majority Caucus Whip Mattie Hunter issued the following statement in regard to her opposition to the Senate vote on Senate Bill 1313:

“I have been advocating for responsible solutions to our state’s budget deficit, but I cannot support doing so on the backs of the people. We have said over and over that we must fix this fiscal problem through shared sacrifice but we cannot do that by breaking promises. I think this was the wrong approach and I am very disappointed by today’s vote.”
