Illinois House Says No To Pay Raises

Even though local Republican lawmakers voted against it, a resolution that tries to close the door on state worker pay raises this year has still easily passed the Illinois House.


The vote was 84 to 29 in favor… but local GOP representatives Raymond Poe, Rich Brauer and Jim Watson were among those voting “no.”


Opponents argue that the issue of raises should be left to the collective bargaining process.


But supporters… including House Speaker Mike Madigan says the Executive Branch can’t keep making promises to workers, and then sending the legislature the bill.
