Illinois’ regional superintendents are still working without pay.  Bob Daibers with the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendent of Schools says state representatives will likely vote on a funding measure on Tuesday but right now, they’re still coming up short.

Four of the superintendents have resigned because of the lack of pay.  Daiber says if lawmakers fail to pass a bill that authorizes their salaries be reinstated, more resignations could be possible.  The officials cannot strike because they are elected officials but they can recess and stop work.
