Chicago sees fiscal doomsday if court suspends pension changes

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 10:42
A temporary suspension of cost-saving changes to two of Chicago public pensions funds risks credit rating downgrades that could cost millions of dollars, the city's chief financial officer said on Thursday. Chief Financial Officer Lois Scott testified in Cook County Circuit Court that all three major credit ratings agencies have negative outlooks on Chicago's ratings, largely due to a big unfunded pension liability that a 2014 Illinois law aims to ease for the city's municipal and laborers' funds. Scott said Chicago's ratings are already lower than most big U.S. cities and that further downgrades would pump up interest rates on new fixed-rate bonds and thin the ranks of potential bond buyers and credit providers. She added the termination of interest-rate hedges and letters of credit on existing variable-rate bonds could be triggered, costing Chicago hundreds of millions of dollars.
