Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the General Provisions, General Assembly, Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF), State Employee, State Universities, and Downstate Teachers Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. In the General Provisions Article, creates an optional cash balance plan. In the General Assembly, State Employees, State Universities, and Downstate Teachers Articles, requires Tier I participants to elect (i) to have the amount of their automatic annual increases reduced and to waive their eligibility for automatic annual increases for 2 years, (ii) to make additional employee contributions and to waive their eligibility for automatic annual increases for 3 years, or (iii) to maintain their current benefit package. Specifies that a Tier I participant who has elected either item (i) or (ii) is entitled to have future increases in income treated as pensionable income, remains eligible to participate in the State-sponsored program of health benefits during retirement, may, in the case of Tier I participants who have elected item (i), participate in the optional cash balance plan, and may, in the case of Tier I participants in the Teachers' Retirement System who have elected item (i), participate in an early retirement program. Specifies that a Tier I participant who has elected item (iii) is not eligible for any of these benefits. In the General Assembly, State Employees, State Universities, and Downstate Teachers Articles, also requires Tier I retirees to elect (i) to delay their eligibility for automatic annual increases or (ii) to maintain their current benefit package. Specifies that a Tier I retiree who elects item (ii) becomes ineligible to participate in the State-sponsored program of health benefits during retirement. In the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, State Employee, State Universities, and Downstate Teacher Articles prohibits new hires of certain non-public entities from becoming participants in the affected retirement funds and systems. Amends the State Finance Act. To the list of standardized items of appropriation, adds "State retirement contribution for annual normal cost" and "State retirement contribution for unfunded accrued liability" and defines those terms. Amends the Governor's Office of Management and Budget Act. Adds those terms to a list of classifications to be used in statements and estimates of expenditures submitted to the Office in connection with the preparation of a State budget. Amends the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act and the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act to make the provisions of the amendatory Act supersede conflicting provisions of those Acts and makes other changes. Makes conforming changes in the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971, as well as other changes. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Amends various Acts concerning public universities and community colleges to make conforming changes. Includes severability provisions. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 4
Makes changes in provisions concerning transfers into the Pension Stabilization Fund.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 5
Replaces the severability provision. Provides that if any benefit change made by this amendatory Act in an Article of the Illinois Pension Code is determined to be unconstitutional or otherwise invalid by a final unappealable decision of an Illinois court or a court of competent jurisdiction, then the State funding guarantee provisions added to that Article by this amendatory Act shall also be invalid, and those funding guarantee provisions shall be contingent upon and inseverable from those benefit changes.
