Quinn ''Suspends'' Legislative Salaries After Pension Reform Inaction

Governor Pat Quinn has raised the stakes in his dispute with lawmakers over pension reform.


Quinn used his line item veto Wednesday to withhold pay for lawmakers until they approve a pension plan and send it to his desk.


The governor says he will also refuse his own paycheck until a deal is put together.


Quinn says fixing the pension crisis is the biggest job facing the legislature… but lawmakers aren’t getting the job done, so they shouldn’t get paid.
