A press release from Governor Bruce Rauner:
Governor’s Office Statement
SPRINGFIELD – The following statement is attributable to Lance Trover, Director of Communications:
“As we approach the end of the month, Speaker Madigan and the politicians he controls have one final chance to side with Republicans and make a clean up or down vote on stopping themselves from getting an automatic pay increase.
“After passing a $4 billion unbalanced budget and refusing to work with Governor Rauner on turning this state around, the last thing the Speaker and his allies deserve is a pay raise.
“That is why the Speaker should call up the Republican bill – without any poison pills or gimmicks – that will stop him and the politicians he controls from receiving a pay raise.”
