(Springfield, IL) — Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger is threatening to freeze the pay of state legislators until a full year budget is passed. Speaking on Governor’s Day yesterday at the State Fair, Munger said she would introduce legislation called “No Budget, no pay.” Illinois lawmakers’ salaries have been delayed because of the budget crisis but not completely suspended. The comptroller said her plan wouldn’t include retroactive pay.
