Quinn Moved Criticized


Governor Pat Quinn is taking some heat for his move to withhold legislative salaries until lawmakers send him a pension reform bill he can sign.  Senate President John Cullerton calls the move counterproductive.  He says lawmakers have been working hard to find a workable solution to a very complex issue, and says the governor’s ultimatums are not helping.  And several of Quinn's political rivals call it a "stunt."

 

Meanwhile, Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is seeking a legal ruling on whether Quinn’s action violates the state Constitution, which prohibits lowering lawmakers’ salaries during their term.
