Judge Denies Attorney General’s Motion to Stop State Worker Pay
Thursday afternoon, A St. Clair County judge denied Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s motion that would have stopped state workers' paychecks during the budget impasse. Even though this ruling favors state workers, during this uncertainty, we are continuing to push for a hearing on our bill, HB1787 which would provide a continuing appropriation for employees to provide certainty for them and their families as we continue to negotiate an overall compromise solution.
This week the Governor delivered his third, and perhaps his most important state budget address in the House Chamber. I believe a responsible budget compromise is within reach. You can watch my video reaction below.
