DES PLAINES, Ill. – Continuing his efforts to remain fiscally responsible, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, has co-sponsored legislation that rejects any pay increases for state lawmakers.

“It is outrageous that legislators in Springfield expect an annual pay raise while the state and the current administration continue to increase the tax burden on working families,” Moylan said. “The families in my district don’t expect yearly raises and neither should we.”

Moylan, who voted against the income tax increase last year, co-sponsored HB 5760 earlier this month in an effort to cut back on state spending and return some fiscal responsibility to the state. This legislation rejects an automatic pay raise for legislators and freezes reimbursements for state officials. House Bill 5760 passed the House with a super majority last week and has been sent to the state Senate.

“As I continue to go door-to-door, I am constantly reminded about families on fixed incomes or those in the district who haven’t received any pay raises in years while their taxes increase,” Moylan said. “Now is not the time for the state to be spending any more money. We must stop worrying about incomes and get to work on solutions that will help the middle class and working families in Illinois.”
