    With the spotlight focused elsewhere, such as the Mike Madigan saga and the Black Caucus push for criminal justice reform, the Illinois Senate voted Monday to raise retirement benefits for 2,200 Chicago firefighters in a way that would saddle beleaguered city taxpayers with $850 million in added costs by 2055. https://chicago.suntimes.com/city-hall/2021/1/11/22225434/firefighter-pensions-increase-illinois-senate-bill-passes-chicago-mayor-objects
