Rep. Butler’s statement on the court actions of the Illinois Attorney General to block state employee pay

“This late-night move by the Attorney General is unconscionable. She has put tens of thousands of hard-working state employees and their families at risk by advocating in court that they not be paid for the work they perform. In the midst of ongoing, bipartisan negotiations in the State Senate to resolve this budget impasse, the Attorney General has decided to create chaos, instead of trying to support a compromise that is potentially in the works. I call on Attorney General Madigan to rescind her motion.”
