Short description: 
PEN CD-DNST TCHR-REEMPLOYMENT                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Downstate Teacher  Article  of  the  Illinois  Pension      
   Code.   Allows certain retired teachers to remain in retirement status      
   and continue to receive their retirement annuities while  engaging  in      
   employment  in  an  educational  service  region that is affected by a      
   shortage of qualified teachers.   Amends  the  State  Employees  Group      
   Insurance  Act of 1971 to provide that health insurance benefits under      
   the State and TRIP plans are suspended while the annuitant is  covered      
   as  an  active  teacher.   Amends  the School Code to require regional      
   superintendents of schools to make and publish their determinations of      
   teacher shortages.  Effective immediately.                                  
          PENSION NOTE (Pension Laws Commission)                               
          The provisions of SB 1844 would not increase the accrued             
          liabilities of TRS, as the returning teacher would not revert        
          to active member status in the System, nor would their               
          employment provide additional service credit in TRS.
