Illinois AG Moves To Stop State Employee Paychecks

Effingham, IL / Effingham Radio

(Springfield, IL)  —  Illinois’ Attorney General is moving to stop paychecks for thousands of state employees. Lisa Madigan last night filed a motion to stop paychecks at the end of February. Unless there’s a state budget. Madigan says Illinois lawmakers have to give the state’s comptroller legal authority to spend the money. She says that authority lapsed when the new legislature took office. Republicans say Madigan’s timing is suspect.
