House Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment 49

October 1, 2012

The Lodge has fielded several questions regarding Constitutional Amendment 49 which will appear on the November 6th Presidential Election ballot. This proposed amendment is being promoted as a “cure” for all of the Illinois pension woes. The reality is that it fails to address what is probably the most important issue of the current pension problem: Funding. President Shields elaborates on these issues in his October FOP Newsletter article.

The Lodge is urging all members to cast a NO vote on this issue. You should encourage all family members and friends to do likewise.

Members should be aware that the last day to register to vote in the upcoming November Presidential Election is Tuesday, October 9, 2012. You must re-register if your address has changed. Your Unit Representative should be able to assist you, or anyone else, in the registration process as he/she was certified as a registrar at a recent Unit Rep meeting. You may also appear at the Lodge for assistance.
