First Hearing on Legislative Pay Veto Today

The first court hearing will be held this morning in the lawsuit filed by two top legislative leaders over Governor Pat Quinn’s move to eliminate lawmaker salaries until the pension crisis is resolved.


House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton are seeking an emergency injunction overturning the governor’s action and reinstating lawmakers’ paychecks.


Madigan and Cullerton are also asking for interest on the delayed pay.


Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office will defend the governor and Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka in the lawsuit, even though Madigan’s father is one of the plaintiffs.
