Rauner praises House vote to block lawmaker pay raise

( KTRS ) Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner is praising a vote by the Illinois House of Representatives to block a contentious pay raise for lawmakers.

The bill passed Tuesday would block the 2 percent cost-of-living increase that lawmakers are automatically due.

Rauner in a statement urged the Senate to pass the bill, too. He also said he’s ready to work with the Legislature on what he called “true structural reforms and a balanced budget.” The pay-raise issue has become a flashpoint in the budget stalemate between the Democrat-controlled Legislature and Rauner.

The Senate isn’t in session until next week. A spokeswoman for Democratic Sen. President John Cullerton says it’s not clear when or if the Senate will vote.
