SPRINGFIELD – A notice of intent to appeal was filed Tuesday in the Legislator Pay case. Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office filed the notice on behalf of Comptroller Susana A. Mendoza with the First District Appellate Court in Chicago.


Comptroller Mendoza believes there is a sound policy reason, given the absence of a balanced state budget, to prioritize payments to the state’s most vulnerable – hospice care; child care; meals on wheels for seniors – ahead of paychecks for elected officials.
