IL: Quinn Sticking To Guns on Lawmaker Pay

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is sticking to his guns when it comes to withholding lawmakers' pay. 

He says it's not fair that taxpayers are dishing out millions-of-dollars every day to pay for the pension shortfall, while lawmakers keep putting the issue off. 

The state stopped paying lawmakers back in July after Quinn slashed the money from the budget. 

Lawmakers have filed suit over the issue and a judge will decide whether to reinstate their pay by next Thursday.
