State Government Retirees To Start Paying Health Insurance Costs Monday

(Springfield, IL)  --  State government retirees will start paying premiums for their state health insurance beginning on Monday.  However, the money will be left untouched in a new state account.  A judge made the ruling Thursday.  A lawsuit had asked that the money be held in escrow until the state Supreme Court figures out if health insurance premiums are an unconstitutional diminishment of pension benefits.
