SCHIMPF STATEMENT ON STATE EMPLOYEE PAY DISPUTE
SPRINGFIELD, IL – State Sen. Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo) offered the following comments after a St. Clair County Circuit Judge denied Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s motion to stop state employee pay.
“I am pleased with the Judge’s decision. Our dedicated correctional officers, mental health workers, state police, and other critical public servants in the 58th Senate District can rest a little easier knowing that their pay checks will continue uninterrupted. I hope this ends the Attorney General’s ill-conceived interference in the legislative budget process,” Schimpf said.
