At $67,836, legislators in Illinois among best-paid in U.S.
Well, finally something where we don't rank at the bottom!
And they don't really have to scrape by on just $67k. They also get "overtime" pay of about 8k and many of them also get another 10k for committees they serve on.
I'm sure they deserve every penny. Look at the great job they have done serving the people of Illinois.
