A group of Democratic Illinois state legislators are suing to get their paychecks more quickly. They've gone without compensation since May 31.
After nearly a year-and-a-half without a full budget, Illinois is taking months and months to pay its bills.
Earlier this year, Comptroller Leslie Munger said she was putting legislator pay at the back of the line with every other state IOU.
Democrats, like Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch, from Hillside, say that's just a way to help push Gov. Bruce Rauner's controversial agenda. And that, he says, is unconstitutional.
