Lawmakers move to keep their paychecks steady

11 months, 3 weeks ago From Associated Press

The Illinois Legislature has passed a measure that would prevent their salaries from being stopped in the future.

The state House and Senate Friday approved the legislation sponsored by Chicago Democratic Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie a day before their spring session was scheduled to end.

The plan would require lawmakers to get a "continuing appropriation" of the salaries that they are promised when they are elected to their respective terms.

Gov. Pat Quinn last summer used his veto powers to eliminate lawmakers' salaries. The governor said the move was a way to push them to reach consensus on a statewide pension overhaul.

Currie says lawmakers didn't like Quinn's maneuver and the legislation is an attempt to "make sure our governor doesn't try it again."
