Another judge will take up debate over state worker paychecks

Posted by wlpo on July 9, 2015

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) – The legal battle over whether Illinois can fully pay state workers amid an ongoing budget impasse is scheduled to return to court today.

Thirteen state worker unions are asking a southwestern Illinois judge to order Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger to continue issuing paychecks without a budget in place. A hearing is this afternoon in Belleville.

A Cook County judge ruled Tuesday that Munger can only pay some workers who are covered under federal minimum wage laws.
