A new law sponsored by Rep. Nicholas K. Smith (D-34) that was introduced with the purpose of amending the Downstate Teachers and State Universities Articles of the Illinois Pension Code went into effect on Aug. 7, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill SB1952 on Feb. 15, when Sen. Andy Manar (D-48) filed it with the Senate clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "amend the Downstate Teachers and State Universities Articles of the Illinois Pension Code".

The Senate passed the bill on April 10 and it arrived in the House on April 11, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 29. The bill was sent to the governor on Aug. 7 and was signed into law on Aug. 8. The law is scheduled to go into effect on Aug. 7.

Illinois legislature enacts laws through bills that can be introduced in either the state House of Representatives or the state Senate. Either chamber of the legislature can reject or amend a bill before it becomes law. Legislators sometimes sponsor "shell bills" devoid of substantive provisions, introduced with the intention of being amended later to include actual legislation.

The following table shows the full history of actions on SB1952.
