An article entitled “PSEBA Benefits; Who Decides?” by Legal Analysis Jerry Zarley appears in the May 2012 issue of the Illinois Municipal Review. Arnstein & Lehr Hoffman Estates Partner Arthur L. Janura is listed as a contributing author of the piece. The article reviews and analyzes when the Public Safety Employees Benefits Act (PSEBA) should come in to play. The PSEBA requires a municipality to pay the full cost of health-insurance for a former firefighter or police officer if that employee was catastrophically injured in the line of duty while responding to what is reasonably believed to be an emergency. The Illinois Municipal Review is a monthly publication on municipal government published by the Illinois Municipal League.
