Will State Lawmakers’ be getting their paychecks in a more timely fashion? For now the simple answer is no.
Comptroller Leslie Munger says that hospitals, social services agencies and others are all waiting and for her the decision to make elected officials wait for pay is a simple one.
The decision by Munger has certainly been felt. Since deciding to put lawmaker pay in the same backlog as many other bills, paychecks from April were just recently received.
