Illinois Governor Wants Back-Pay Lawsuit Dropped
Quinn and 35,000 members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees agreed to a three-year contract last month. The two sides resolved a disagreement about 5.25 percent in raises due in 2011 and 2012 that Quinn refused to pay at the time. Now the two sides are seeking a legislative appropriation.
But Quinn wants Madigan to drop lingering legal action over the matter. Madigan's office says it won't push the lawsuit while lawmakers are asked for the money.
