A.G. Madigan Moves to Stop Paychecks to State Workers
Illinois' Attorney General is moving to stop paychecks for thousands of state employees. Lisa Madiagn last night filed a motion to stop paychecks at the end of February. Unless there's a state budget. Madigan says Illinois lawmakers have to give the state's comptroller legal authority to spend the money. She says that authority lapsed when the new legislature took office. Republicans say Madigan's timing is suspect.
