IL: Quinn to Appeal "No-Pay" Ruling

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn says he will appeal a decision from a Cook County judge who has ruled that Illinois lawmakers must be paid.

Quinn said over the summer he was stopping paychecks because lawmakers haven't solved the state's pension woes.

But the judge says the state Constitution makes it clear lawmakers' pay can't be changed while they're serving their terms.
