A press release from Governor Bruce Rauner:
Statement on Attorney General’s Lawsuit to Stop State Employee Pay
CHICAGO – The Rauner Administration released the following statement in response to Attorney General Madigan’s lawsuit to stop state employee pay. The following is attributable to Rauner Spokesperson, Catherine Kelly:
“It’s disappointing to see any move to stop employee pay and disrupt government services, especially now as the Senate is on the verge of a bipartisan agreement to enact a balanced budget with changes to the system.
“This filing seeks to directly harm thousands of employee families and even more who rely on our dedicated state workers everyday.
“We urge the Attorney General to reconsider this filing and pledge to do all we can to defend employee pay.”
