A judge says Gov. Pat Quinn overstepped his authority when he blocked paychecks for Illinois lawmakers.
The governor stands by his actions, saying it's his best option for cajoling the General Assembly into overhauling the state's pension systems. Quinn said he plans to appeal.
Members of the General Assembly have missed two paydays so far.
Lawmakers with direct deposit have already received paychecks, but 21 who only get paper checks haven't.
