Topinka Won't Issue Paychecks For Lawmakers, But Blasts Quinn For Vetoing Their Pay


No paychecks for lawmakers. 

 

State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says she cannot issue paychecks as scheduled next week because Governor Pat Quinn vetoed the appropriation for their salaries and stipends.  And Topinka says under the law, she cannot issue a paycheck without an appropriation. 

 

But Topinka is very critical of Quinn’s tactic of eliminating the salaries in an attempt to force lawmakers to pass a pension reform plan.  She says “threats, blackmail and inertia” are no way to lead the state. 

 

Topinka says it will ultimately be up to lawmakers or the courts to resolve the standoff with the Governor.
