CHICAGO (CBS) — One of the state lawmakers whose paychecks are being withheld by Gov. Pat Quinn over the state’s pension stalemate appeared to be about to upstage the governor at a bill signing yesterday.
WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports it seemed like it was going to be an embarrassing moment for the governor as he prepared to sign legislation giving the Illinois Department of Transportation authority over the proposed South Suburban Airport.
State Rep. Anthony DeLuca (D-Chicago Heights) was at the podium, next to the governor, when he hinted at Quinn’s veto blocking legislative salaries.
“You know, recently, the governor’s made a decision – some decisions – that questioned my confidence in him,” DeLuca said.
