Illinois Governor: Lawmakers Can Override Veto Suspending Their Paychecks, If They Dare

Lawmakers looking for the courts to get paid instead


Governor Pat Quinn today literally dared state lawmakers to override his veto which cuts off funding for their paychecks.

The Governor said there was no reason for lawmakers to go to court to reverse him. They could do it themselves.

After filing the lawsuit yesterday, with the judge setting November 27 for an initial hearing, no one has done anything to speed things up.
