My father was an over-the-road truck driver and my mom tended bar when I was a kid. You have any other smart-ass, unintelligent questions like this?

It is sad that the young man lost his life. It really is tragic. When most of us older folks were that age, we lost friends too in tragic accidents. Some were killed in wars. That was tragic too but we worked it out 'between each of us' without a team of doctors, councillors and social workers. It prepared us for the future where there won't be this team every time something bad happens.…

Because, CW, random shootings are very rare in Quincy. I've been living in the area all my life, and I can't name a single murder that was without cause. Whether love triangle, workplace violence, drug deal gone bad - there's always been a reason.

Mandatory IRA bill passes Illinois Senate

11 months, 1 week ago by Bob Gough

Bill would force employers to set up IRA's and automatically deduct 3 percent from employees' checks

A bill has passed in the Illinois Senate that would force employers to establish Individual Retirement Accounts for their employees

SB 2758,  passed Wednesday by a 30-22-2. Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville) was one of the two present votes. 

The Bill mandates employers set up an automatic Individual Retirement Account for their employees, a system to be administered by the Illinois Dept. of Revenue and a newly created Board led by the Illinois Treasurer.  The legislation targets small businesses with 25 or more employees and forces them to not only set up the accounts but also automatically deduct at least 3% from their employees’ paychecks. 

An employee would have to actively pursue “opting out” if they did not want to participate. The bill doesn't force employers to match their employee contributions

The measure now moves to the Illinois House.

The bill is dubbed the The Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program and is supported by AARP Illinois, Illinois Asset Building Group, Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, Woodstock Institute, Heartland Alliance, SEIU Illinois/Indiana and over 45 other businesses, associations and advocacy groups.
