QC Lawmaker's Bill Puts Legislator Pay Behind Other Spending Priorities

Quad Cities area State Senator Neil Anderson is co-sponsoring legislation that provides greater flexibility to place priorities, like funding for hospitals, human services, and universities, ahead of legislator and constitutional officer pay. The bill follows a recent court ruling that put legislator paychecks ahead of other outstanding financial obligations.

Under the bill, the Comptroller is authorized to delay monthly salary payments to legislators if there are insufficient funds in the state's General Revenue Fund to pay all other obligations within 90 days after a voucher requesting reimbursement has been submitted to the Comptroller.
