Gov. Quinn's Veto of Legislative Pay Goes to IL Supreme Court


The Illinois Supreme Court has agreed to hear Governor Pat Quinn’s direct appeal of a ruling that undid his veto of lawmaker salaries.

 

Quinn withheld legislative pay in an attempt to force lawmakers to approve pension reform, but a lower court found that the governor’s action violated the state constitution.

 

Quinn still insists he was within his rights to zero out the salary line item, and says he’s pleased the high court has agreed to take on the case.
