Legislative Update-8/11/22

The Illinois Retired Teachers Association Political Action Committee (IRTAPAC) will meet on Wednesday, August 17th to discuss and vote on potential candidates to endorse for the upcoming General Election taking place in November 2022. Candidates will only be considered if they returned a completed questionnaire, which they received in early July. The questionnaire contained questions regarding their position on changes to the constitution, the current tax code, health insurance, Teachers Retirement Insurance Program (TRIP), and funding. The recipients to receive endorsement will be carefully selected and voted on by the IRTAPAC, and then ultimately approved by the IRTAPAC Board of Directors. Once approved, members will be updated with a full list of endorsed candidates.
