Illinois attorney general says no state paychecks without budget

Attorney General for the State of Illinois Madigan testifies before House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on recent Target and Neiman Marcus data breaches in WashingtonIllinois state workers cannot be paid without an enacted budget for the fiscal year that begins Wednesday, State Attorney General Lisa Madigan said on Monday as a major labor union warned it could sue over any missed paychecks. The Democrat-controlled legislature and Republican Governor Bruce Rauner have been at an impasse over a spending plan. Madigan said “the Illinois Constitution and statutes prevent the comptroller from continuing to pay expenditures, including the state’s payroll, without a budget, and even a court cannot order all of these payments to be made.” Roberta Lynch, executive director of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31, the state’s biggest labor union, said workers will remain on the job and that the union will be prepared to take legal action to ensure they are paid on time and in full.
