Illinois Lawmakers Won't Get Paychecks

The check is not in the mail for Illinois lawmakers… who will miss a paycheck today because of Governor Pat Quinn’s veto of their salaries.


Quinn eliminated lawmakers’ pay in order to pressure them into completing work on pension reform.


Two of Quinn’s fellow Democrats… House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton… have sued, claiming Quinn’s move is an unconstitutional abuse of power, but no hearing has been set in the case.


Quinn says his move is legal… and says lawmakers should spend less time suing and more time fixing the pension crisis.
