ILLINOIS MUNICIPALITY CAN REDUCE ITS CONTRIBUTION TO RETIREE’S HEALTH INSURANCE: In Lawson v. City of Genesco, the Illinois 3rd District Court of Appeals ruled that Genesco’s offer of health care coverage to retirees with more than 10 years of service was not covered by the Illinois Pension Code, and as such, could be reduced or eliminated by the municipality, an action that opens an avenue of relief to cash-strapped municipalities with large pension commitments.
