    Possible pension shift in state budget concerns education leaders

    LENORE SOBOTA
    Herald & Review News Service
    Feb 14, 2018

    BLOOMINGTON — Under the budget plan announced by Gov. Bruce Rauner on Wednesday, school districts and public community colleges and universities would have to pick up pension costs currently covered by the state.

    It's an idea that's been discussed in various forms for a few years, so it wasn't entirely a surprise.

    Under Rauner's plan, the pension shift would be phased in over four years. Universities also would have to pick up their health care costs.

    Rauner said this would be offset by an additional $205 million in appropriations in fiscal year 2019 and other “tools.”

    Neither Illinois State University nor Heartland Community College had figures immediately available on what the impact of the cost shift would be.

    “That's essentially a cut in our appropriations,” said ISU President Larry Dietz. “It wasn't any of the universities that put the pension system in place; it was the state.”

    Both Dietz and Heartland President Rob Widmer noted it is still early in the budget process.

    “The odds of any governor's budget proposal being the final product is not how it works,” Widmer said.

    If a shift in pension costs is approved, he said, “certainly the longer we would have to cope and adjust the better.”

    Rauner said, “Our administration is an emphatic advocate for education investment.”

    He said the structural reforms included in his proposal would enable the state “to spend a record $8.3 billion on pre-K to 12 education. That includes $350 million of new money distributed through our more equitable funding formula.”

    There was some good news for public colleges and universities in Rauner's remarks.

    Calling for making higher education a priority, Rauner said, “This year we bring an end to budget reductions for our university and community college systems.”

    The state's Monetary Award Program, which provides grants to college students based on financial need, would be funded at FY18 levels, with an eye toward increased funding in the future, Rauner said.

    Rauner's budget calls for adding $100 million in capital funds to address deferred maintenance on college campuses.

    Dietz said ISU has a backlog of about $500 million in deferred maintenance.

    “We obviously care about the dollar amount, but stability of funding and a dollar amount we could plan around would take some of the anxiety out,” he said.

    Dietz and Widmer expressed hope that a budget agreement is reached before the fiscal year begins, rather than more delayed or partial year budgets.

    Widmer said, “After the experiences of the last couple of years, everyone realizes the turmoil it creates without a budget.”

    State pensions are a huge problem in Ill-noise. The state promised its employees way more than it can possibly deliver.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Trump live and being very fair I believe in listening to all sides on this.

    Guns are good .........people are bad..............

    Certain age groups lacking a level of maturity or that fail due to drug use or a record of violence or behavior issues shouldn't be given access to some type of ballistics unsupervised.

    Teachers & faculty should be permitted to have guns in schools and certified to carry in that environment to help protect a situation when police couldn't possibly be there to help aid sitting ducks.

    Shooting Survivor: CNN Gave Me "Scripted Question" After Denying Question About Armed Guards

    Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. (CNN response below.)

    "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV.

    Jack: Not sure whether Mr Trump is being "very fair" and "listening to all sides on this", but it does appear from the news (both fake and "real") that we get down here that the new generation of American kids are starting to take an interest in this matter - which is not surprising given that it's their lives that hang in the balance.

    Personally, and without taking sides, I continue to remain both perplexed and fascinated with the gun culture that appears to be a fundamental part of USA life style.

    I think it matters less whether the young folk that are in front of the cameras are being groomed by interest groups, or whether their words are "scripted". For me, the fact that young faces are starting to be seen in the debate is the real story. It kind-of takes me back to last century when the then youth did the same when their lives were being cut-short because of conscription to a distant skirmish in a far-off Asian country.

    I've missed and lamented the fact that until recently, the younger generations (in all countries) appear to believe that a "movement" is something that happens in a toilet!

    What a great image to see your youth standing proud in front of TV cameras and speaking so articulately and with such fervor about something that personally matters to them.

    I'm not sure if the recent appalling deaths will change anything - but I hope that the media dynamic by the kids persists, grows and becomes a ground-swell movement by the young!

    Don

    PS: and as to the proposals that schools in America become armed (more so than they are now) - how about the alternative suggestion by some of your wiser spokesmen: why not simply fund your current enforcement agencies adequately to police your existing gun laws?
