Court Sets Another Date in Lawmakers Pay Dispute Case

Illinois lawmakers could miss at least one more monthly payday before their dispute with Governor Pat Quinn is resolved.


A judge in Chicago has set September 18th as the date for oral arguments in the lawsuit filed by House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton.


They say Quinn violated the state Constitution by eliminating funding for legislative salaries in order to force lawmakers to pass pension reform.


All 177 legislators have missed their August paycheck and will apparently also not get paid at the start of September, unless some other resolution to the impasse is found.
