   annuity instead of a refund.  Provides that periods of qualified leave      
   granted  in  compliance  with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act

   disability  benefits.   Allows an employee to make payment of optional      
   contributions through tax-deferred payroll deductions.  Adds a  second

          service requirements, an estimated increase in average annual        
          cost of IMRF employers by 0.05% of payroll for regular mem-
