IL Supreme Court hears health premium case

Retired state workers who collect pensions in Illinois started paying health insurance premiums this summer. That's because of a change in the law last year. Previously health insurance was free for anyone who retired with at least 20 years of service.

A number of retirees sued over the change. The case was argued Wednesday before the Illinois Supreme Court. Illinois Public Radio's Brian Mackey has more.
