4% salary hikes will go to legislators, the Governor and other statewide elected officials.
But not in Illinois.
I asked my State Representative, Barb Wheeler, what happened re legislative salaries in Illinois and she replied,
“We voted not to take it.”
Now that a budget has passed, legislators will get paid for May and June.
In April, State Comptroller Leslie Munger decided to put legislative pay checks at the end of the line until a budget was in place.
