===Raising lawmaker salaries===
 +
 +
In May 2011, Illinois Senate lawmakers entertained a bill, SB2467, which included an “additional amounts per year” for select lawmakers: committee chairmen and committee minority spokesmen and spokeswomen. Sen. [[Dan Kotowski]] sponsored the measure.
 +
 +
The lump-sum appropriations in the proposal would increase pay for Senate committee chiefs by 14 percent. House committee bosses would see a 47-percent jump in pay. The increases were on top of the base $67,836 annual salaries that all lawmakers earn. Committee and leadership posts bring extra pay. In other words, more taxpayers’ money would be funneled into extra pay for select lawmakers, said Sen. [[Dale Righter]].
 +
 +
“So there’s some games being played here,” said Righter, a member of the Senate Executive Committee. “And sometimes that’s the way things happen — like this — is because (Democrats) want to do it before anyone really sees it.”
 +
 +
However, Kotowski said this move would restore the public’s good faith and trust to the government.
 +
 +
“We’re basically changing the existing law, to require legislators to work 12 days without getting paid,” he said. “That’s very, very, important, and that’s going to lead to reduction in salaries across the board this year and a total of saving $1.2 million for taxpayers.”
 +
 +
Lawmakers do want the public to notice when they cut their own pay, Righter and Kotowski said.
 +
 +
“But not this, the increasing the stipend (proposal), because it kind of makes it look like, ‘OK you’re taking it out of your pocket over here, but you’re going to shove your other pocket full,’” Righter said. “That’s what it looks like, like the outset that they’re trying to do here.”<ref>[http://statehousenewsonline.com/2011/05/16/illinois-lawmakers-hush-hush-about-a-pay-raise/ "Illinois lawmakers hush-hush about pay raise in the budget," ''Illinois Statehouse News'', May 16, 2011]</ref>
