Judge: Governor Can't Spend Unappropriated Money for Contracts

A Cook County judge agrees that Governor Pat Quinn cannot spend money that was not appropriated by the legislature, even if there is a binding contract in place.


But the judge has asked an arbitrator to collect more information before deciding whether there was really a funding shortfall last year that would have allowed Quinn to withhold promised pay raises for state workers.


That same arbitrator has already ruled once in favor of AFSCME, and the union says it will work to again make its case that the workers are entitled to the raises that were negotiated in their contract.
