Lawmakers' Paychecks Still On Hold; Hearing Set For Sept. 18th


It looks like Illinois lawmakers will have to wait weeks… at least… to get their next paycheck. 

 

A judge in Chicago has set a hearing date of September 18th for arguments in the lawsuit brought by two legislative leaders trying to undo Governor Pat Quinn’s veto of legislative salaries.  Quinn eliminated the pay to force lawmakers to pass a pension reform plan… but House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton say Quinn’s action is unconstitutional. 

 

It appears the veto will stand at least until the hearing is held next month… meaning lawmakers will miss at least two monthly paychecks before they get their day in court.
