Illinois Lawmakers Won't Seek Interest On Delayed Paychecks


Illinois lawmakers will not seek the interest payments they are owed as a result of Governor Pat Quinn’s attempt to withhold their paychecks during last year’s pension reform fight. 

 

A court eventually overturned Quinn’s move to block legislative pay, and ordered lawmakers to receive their back pay with interest.  But the court didn’t say how much interest, so the extra money wasn’t paid. 

 

After originally saying they would seek the extra money, legislative leaders now say they’ll drop the matter.
