House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: December 3, 2018 03:56 PM
From: Representative Christopher B. Quinn
To: All House members
Subject: Budget Impasse Pay Suspension
I plan to reintroduce a reform that ensures proper fiscal discipline in the event of a budget impasse. This legislation would amend the Administrative Code of 1929 by suspending compensation for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, cabinet officers, and the General Assembly if a general appropriation bill is not passed by the June 30th deadline.

If we are not able to pass a budget on time as the state constitution requires, then we should not get paid until we have done the job the taxpayers have elected us to do.

Please consider co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB182
