One of the recipients died in Maryland, prompting the investigation. None of the three surviving recipients has symptoms of rabies, but all are being given anti-rabies shots as a precaution.
Bi-Partisan Pension Reform Bill Advances
A third pension reform bill has advanced past the committee stage in Springfield. The latest bill, sent to the full House of Representatives on a bi-partisan vote, is the most comprehensive. Like bills already awaiting votes in the House and Senate, this bill would limit and delay cost-of-living adjustments to pension benefits and require state employees to pay more
into the system. This bill also creates for new employees a pension program that includes elements of a 401(k)-style plan. Proponents say this bill would cut the state's pension debt by 28-billion-dollars.
