The Chicago Tribune writes about Representative McDermed’s House Bill 303, banning secret severance agreements, which recently passed the House. The editorial argues that the bill should continue moving forward and be sent to the Governor to become law:
“Will it get a floor vote in the Senate? It must. There’s no defending these expensive golden parachutes, much less the secrecy surrounding them. Severance agreements funded by taxpayers should be public documents, no questions asked. Send this bill to the governor.”
