Increases employee contribution for persons who first become participants on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act and makes other changes to the employee contribution rate.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB14 makes several changes to city contribution rates for the Municipal Employees' Annuity and Benefit Fund and Laborers' Annuity and Benefit Fund. Such changes include defined maximums for tax levies on the city's taxable property for years 2018 through 2022, and a new method for calculating maximums for years following 2022. The bill also offers increased employee contribution rates to Tier 2 employees who opt for reduced retirement ages. This bill also introduces an annuity for Tier 3 members, and all new city officers who are members of the Municipal Employees' Annuity and Benefit Fund will not be eligible for alternative annuity or alternative disability benefits. There are several factors in this bill that will likely make a significant fiscal impact on both the Municipal Employees' and Laborers' Fund. At this time, no actuarial cost study has been made available to CGFA, thus the long-term fiscal impact cannot be determined. An updated impact note will be issued when an actuarial cost study has been obtained from the affected pension funds.

 Fiscal Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB 14 will not have a fiscal impact on the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 SB 14 has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 SB 14 would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This legislation would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to this bill as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Home Rule Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.
