House Floor Amendment No. 6
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill, as amended by House Amendment No. 4, with changes that include the following. In the Chicago Municipal and Chicago Laborers Articles, provides that beginning January 1, 2019, employee contributions shall be the lesser of: (i) 9.5% of each payment of salary combined with certain other contributions for automatic annual increases and widow's annuities; or (ii) the total normal cost, calculated using the entry age normal actuarial method, projected for that fiscal year for the benefits and expenses of the plan, but not less than 6.5% of each payment of salary combined with certain other contributions for automatic annual increases and widow's annuities.
