There is all kinds of assistance already out there for the single mothers that you speak of, and they take full advantage of it. I've heard of single mothers getting so much financial aid to go back to school that they have money left over. Then they drop out because hey, they didn't have to pay for it. Single moms who get so much EITC on their tax returns that they can go out and get…

Never heard of such a thing. Cities and counties along with townships submit their request, then CMS uses that total for their RFP. If a supplier cannot meet that total then I would guess some could be left off the RFP total, but have never heard of that. The other comment states " bids range from $70 to $140 per ton" so why is Quincy paying $95 per ton? Still I have never heard of CMS cutting off…

Mandatory IRA bill passes Illinois Senate

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.
