Comptroller Mendoza Pleased With Court Ruling on Lawmaker Back Pay

THE ILLINOIS SUPREME COURT IS SIDING WITH COMPTROLLER SUSANA MENDOZA IN A CASE WHERE TWO LAWMAKERS SUED FOR BACK PAY. 

 

THE COURT SAID THAT FORMER SENATORS MIKE NOLAND AND JAMES CLAYBORNE, AND SUBSEQUENTLY THE REST OF THE LEGISLATURE, CAN’T GET THE PAY RAISES THEY PREVIOUSLY FORFEITED. COMPTROLLER MENDOZA IS PLEASED WITH THE RULING.

 

 

MENDOZA SAYS WHILE THEY WERE IN OFFICE, THEY BOTH PUSHED FOR LAWMAKERS TO FORGO THEIR ANNUAL RAISES.

 

 

MENDOZA SAYS THE DECISION IS SAVING TAXPAYERS AT LEAST 10 MILLION DOLLARS.
