“Summers says there’s a bill nearing passage in Springfield that that would give Teachers Pension Funds their own tax levy. No, says Summers, that doesn’t mean higher property taxes.”

Comment: Just an academic exercise, apparently. Puhleez.

Wouldn’t this be just like the downstate police and fire plans that levy pension taxes with the approval of the municipalities’ governing bodies? In the case of P&F, property taxes don’t increase but the allocation of the property tax dollars may shift to pensions from other spending categories.

I believe he is referring to a different concept, under which the pension board itself could act to force the levy or it would be automatic, as with IMRF.
