To be delivered to: Governor Pat Quinn
In his 2013 budget, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn proposes to "zero out" the state's contribution to the Retired Teachers Health Insurance Program (TRIP and CIP). Active teachers and their districts contribute every pay check to this insurance program, while retired teachers have paid a substantial premium every month. But now without warning
Governor Quinn has unilaterally proposed to slash state support. As a result, retired teachers' health insurance costs will significantly increase.
Governor Quinn is breaking the state's promise to the men and women who spent 35 years teaching the children of Illinois. Tell Governor Quinn this is no way to support teachers!
