Rauner: Stopping state-worker paychecks would hurt families

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration contends Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s attempt to stop state employee paychecks amid the budget crisis is ill-timed and ill-conceived. The Republican governor filed an appellate-court brief Friday arguing that Democrat Madigan should have acted sooner. And it says she doesn’t consider family hardships if paychecks stop. Madigan’s office says she acted properly.
