The Illinois Senate on Wednesday approved a bill to stop a roughly $1,400 pay raise for lawmakers.
The House last week voted to stop the pay hike. Both rejected the automatic 2 percent cost-of-living adjustment.
Both Democrats and Republicans came together on the bill, as the budget impasse continues.
Last week, Senate President John Cullerton told the Sun-Times the bill was “blatantly unconstitutional,” but that he’d support it.
The bill was passed 49-2 to without debate.
Voting against the bill were Emil Jones III, D-Chicago, and Kimberly Lightford, D-Westchester.
